Hello, this is Coreen from Shakes Bakes and right now, we are going to be making ginger tea. But, the ginger tea that I'm going to have you make is an exotic ginger tea using some really fine ingredients. So first off we need one cup of sliced ginger, three cups of water, one and a half tablespoons of orange zest. We need one and a half tablespoons of pomegranate seeds, one orange that's sliced, one Asian pear cut in halves, two thirds of a cup of sugar, cup of course, we need a lag. And the reason I'm using a skillet and not a pot is because the ingredients that I have, I want them to kind of melt and not be top or on top of each other. So, I wanted them kind of spread out so that the can incorporate their flavors a little bit more easily. So, let's get started. First, I'm going to put my water ginger and zest into my skillet. So, when I have those ingredients there, give it a little stir; let this boils up, I'm going to cover it. And then let that boil for about fifteen minutes. Okay. Looks like she's boiling. So, about fifteen minutes have past and she is boiling. So right now, I can go ahead and add the sugar 'cause I want it to dissolve inside of here and soon as the sugar dissolves, we'll go ahead and cut this heat. So, it looks like it's dissolved; I'm going to go ahead and kill the heat and I'm going to quickly add my oranges and my Asian pears. Alright. Beautiful. So, what I'm going to do now is go ahead and cover this up and let it steep for an hour. Beautiful. So, our tea has been steeping for about an hour now and what I like to do with my tea is I like to get actually a thermos and put it as is inside my thermos and pour each glass of tea when I need it. But, I like to keep it in this form instead of straining it off and then, putting it away. I like to keep it exactly like this so that I get that punch every time I have a glass of tea. So, I'll show you how I would prepare a tea, let's say if I have company. First, I would have my strainer. Put it under my teacup; so, nice and hot. "Hmmm". And I have a ladle and I'm going to go ahead, I'm going to ladle this into my cup. Look at that, "Hmmm". So, let's see if we can get more and more ladle on this cup. Oh, beautiful. Perfect. And so, I'm going to go ahead and I'm going to garnish with some pomegranate seeds just for a surprise when I reach the bottom. As you can see these pomegranates go off for a nice festive touch. And this is how I believe exotic ginger tea should be served.
