Simple and satisfying, this tea is bright and balanced, and will warm you up on the coldest of days.
Pear Ginger Orange Tea
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (from an orange! Not a carton)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 heaping tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
1 large, very ripe pear, grated
Put the water, orange juice, lemon juice, ginger, and pear in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce to medium-low heat and let simmer for 30 minutes. Strain the mixture into two mugs, pressing the pulp to get all the flavor. Serve warm.

I’ve got to try this and no it’s not premature and yes the furnace is a must!!!!!!!!!
You did try it! About a year ago, though.
A lovely cup of tea, Laurie, and very fitting for this time of the year when the cold and flu season is upon us. By the way, I really think you’ve done very well with only putting your furnace on now. (I have been known to flick the switch on in August. Gasp!). No snow here yet, but we feel it coming.
August!? Well, you do live much further north than I do! So I’ll accept that. 🙂
