Recipe by The FruitGuys

INGREDIENTS
5–6 assorted citrus fruits (lemon, grapefruit, orange, cara-cara, tangerine, etc.)
1/4 cup of freshly grated raw ginger (more or less to taste)
Honey or agave nectar

PREPARATION

  • Rinse citrus fruits in cool water and cut in half.
  • Gently squeeze citrus into a large saucepan, add in citrus halves and grated ginger, and cover with water by 2 inches (should be around 6–8 cups).
  • Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, then reduce heat to low, cover, and let simmer for 30–40 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let steep (lid just slightly ajar) for 10–15 minutes.
  • Carefully strain tea into a heat-proof container (once cooled enough, citrus halves may be squeezed into container to extract remaining juice).
  • Stir in honey or agave nectar, garnish with a slice of lemon, and serve.

Makes 6–8 servings. Prep time, 5 minutes; cook time, 30–40 minutes.

Cook’s note: For a simpler version of this tea—for every cup of water, include the juice of 1 lemon, the squeezed lemon halves, and 4–6 thin slices of fresh raw ginger. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat and let steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain into a heated mug and stir in honey or agave nectar to taste.
