Three Teas Tips:
*You can use fresh or frozen ginger, or no ginger if it's not your thing. One option that I have found very convenient is from Trader Joe's. They have trays of frozen ginger cubes, with each cube being 1 tsp. Another option is ground ginger powder. If using powder, I would do just a few shakes or 1/2 tsp.
**Sometimes I will blend this up the night before and have for breakfast or lunch the next day.
