What goes well with your lemon and ginger tea?
Drink with a dose of honey
Our favourite and most popular choice is easily the most simple. Add honey to your lemon and ginger drink to give it a touch of sweetness. Many people think that adding honey to tea or coffee can prevent them from getting a cold when the winter draws in. So go ahead, try it for yourself.
Accompany with lemon and ginger cake
Now this might seem way over the top, but for those who just cant get enough of lemon and ginger, what better way to enhance the flavour with some home made comforting cake.
Accompany with a healthy piece of fruit
If you don’t want to counteract the health beenfits you’re already getting by eating cake, then try accompanying your tea with a piece of healthy fruit. For example, a plum or sweet orange can work great for balancing out the flavours.
Drink with Cucumber
Adding cucumber to the water will give your tea a completely different feel. Try and leave the cucumber in for a longer period of time to really bring out the flavours.
Accompany with sesame crusted salmon
Often you first choose your food and then which drink goes well. But how about choosing your drink first and then deciding what to have with it. A sesame crusted salmon can work wonders with a lemon and ginger tea because the salt and light taste of the salmon will significantly complement the flavours from the tea.

So how can you make your tea with an everyday cafe ole teapot?
First you need a heaped teaspoon of leaves to add to the teapot. As soon as the water is boiled, pour it into the teapot. Then let the drink brew for 3-4 minutes so you can really extract the flavours. Don’t be too impatient, the longer you leave it, the better the drink will taste.
