Ginger Pear Tea


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!



Ginger Pear Tea


  • 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!
