Slice the ginger into thin pieces, no more than 1/4-inch thick. There's no need to peel it, but you should wash off any visible dirt from the skin.
Place the sliced ginger in a small sauce pan, and cover with 8 to 12 ounces of water. If you want to make more than one serving, you can double or triple this recipe, as needed.
Bring the water to a boil, then lower to a simmer. Let the mixture simmer for at least 5 minutes (or up to 10 minutes), and then remove from the heat.
Pour the liquid through a fine mesh strainer to catch the large ginger pieces, then serve warm with a squeeze of fresh lemon and honey, to taste.
You can store extra ginger tea in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. Serve it cold or reheated.
Nutrition information is for 1 serving of ginger tea, without the lemon or honey, since that is added to taste. This information is just an estimate, and not a guarantee.
