Ginger-orange tisane

Rosemary sprigs add even more flavor to this soothing brew.

“If you’re feeling tired, under the weather, or in need of a sinus cleanse, this is the tea for you,” says New York City–based recipe developer Sarah Jampel. The fresh ginger provides spiciness and aids in digestion, while orange adds a boost of vitamin C. The honey, if you choose to drizzle it in, soothes throat soreness—use a raw version for its antibiotic benefits.

One 2-inch piece of ginger, coarsely grated (no need to peel)
1 orange, rinsed, one half zested, other half sliced into rounds for serving
1 to 2 small sprigs rosemary
Honey, for sweetening (optional)


In a small pot, combine grated ginger and orange zest with 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, until extremely fragrant and slightly reduced.
Place a sprig of rosemary and one to two orange rounds in a mug (or, if serving two people, a sprig and an orange round in each mug). Strain the tea into the mug(s) and sweeten to taste with honey, if desired.
