Is it real Tea?

Bruise 4- 1/4 inch slices of ginger and use the back side of a large knife. Place the ginger in a 6 cup tea pot with 1/4 cup of brown sugar. add 6 cups boiling waterSteep 5 min. No I didn't forget anything this is it. this is great with what the grand kids call cinnamon sticks. If you're interested let me know and I'll post the recipe.it's easy and a kid pleaser.

Also great for clearing sinuses! Love ginger tea made this way. Ma, are the "cinnamon sticks" a cookie or the real thing?

Yes, since January! I couldn't have the extra ginger, at least the amount I was used to having while I was taking the anti-platlet medication, but that is done now and I can have all the ginger I want. Who knew ginger works like aspirin as a blood thinner?

I always check food-drug interactions and the why of them. Ginger on it's own won't make your blood too thin, but the medication I was taking would have set me up for bleeding and being unable to clot. Not good!
