This is extremely spicy, I think because of the ginger amount or being grated which I did finely. I had to use a considerable amount of organic Canadian unpasteurised honey and it was still hard to drink but I guess it will give some health benefits which I need so I drank most of it!
Honey is the best sweetner for this. Ginger and cayenne both are great for helping you get over illness. I also used it all the time for my morning sickness.
Too spicy for me as an alone drink, but it's absolutely great when added to tea (about 4tablespoons per cup).
A ginger lover's tea. Try it with or without sweetening. Wonderful either way.
