To make good ginger tea, stir in honey and lemon and sip while still piping hot and aromatic. You can also add a cinnamon stick while the tea simmers for added flavor.

3 important things to remember when storing tea;
- Airtight – Air circulation will cause the tea to dry out and lose flavor.
- Dry – Moisture will cause the tea to decompose and, in extreme conditions, grow mold (yuck!).
- Dark – This is debatable among the tea nerds like me, but UV rays in the light will break down the polyphenols in tea, thus reducing the flavor.
