2 cups of water
Get a fresh ginger root and cut about 4 to 5 thin slices and put them in a large mug. Pour very hot, but not boiling water over the slices. Cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes. Strain the water to remove the ginger. Add a 1-2 tablespoons of honey and/or lemon if you like. Your ginger tea is ready to be consumed.
