I adore tea. This doesn’t have any tea leaves in it, but the fact that it’s simmered and steeped makes it a tea.
So delicate. A must try, again and again, and again!
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 4 cups water
- 2 pears, peeled and coarsely grated (I couldn’t find my grater, so I just sliced the pears very thin, chopped them into 1″ long segments. Worked perfectly!)
- 1-inch piece ginger, sliced into 1/8-inch coins
In a medium pot bring water, grated pear, ginger and sugar to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the pears are very soft, about 30 minutes Remove from heat and strain into a bowl or pitcher, or whatever. Refrigerate until chilled, or drink it hot!
