Serves: 2
  • 2 large mandarin oranges, juiced
  • zest from 1 mandarin
  • thumb sized piece of ginger, peeled and sliced into 4 pieces
  • 6 cups or 1.5 liter water
  • 1 tsp whole fennel seeds
  • honey to taste
  1. In a large pot place all ingredients except the honey. Cover, simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes or longer if desired. Add honey to taste and turn off heat. Allow to cool down slightly. Strain into tea pot or tea cups. Serve with a slice of mandarin if desired.
Tips: -For a caffeinated version loose black tea may be added to the pot after 10 minutes of simmering. Allow tea to steep for 5 minutes before adding honey and straining. - For a different taste substitute the mandarins with lemon. - Can also be served cold over ice cubes. - Feel free to adjust ingredient amounts and simmering time.
