Once the mixture reaches the boiling point, simmer it for 15 minutes on low fire only, okay?
After that, let it cool for a while, and then strain the mixture to remove the excess debris of ginger. Then, season the ginger tea with some honey and a squeeze of lemon. And finally, stir the mixture thoroughly then serve it with some more lemon slices and ice to make it more refreshing and thirst-quenching. That’s it! Enjoy!
