  • 6 cups water
  • 1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • 8 lemon peel strips (2-1/2 x 1 inch each)*
  • 6 green tea bags
  • Sugar substitute (optional)
  • Lemon slices (optional)


  1. In a large saucepan stir together the water, ginger, and lemon peel strips. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Remove ginger and lemon strips with a slotted spoon and discard.
  2. Place tea bags in a teapot; immediately add simmering water mixture. Cover and let steep according to tea package directions (1 to 3 minutes). Remove tea bags, squeezing gently, and discard. Serve immediately in heatproof glass mugs or cups. If desired, sweeten to taste with sugar substitute and garnish with lemon slices. Makes 5 to 6 servings.


  • * Remove lemon peel using a vegetable peeler. If necessary, use a sharp knife to scrape off any white pith that remains on the peel, as this can cause bitterness.
