    Chai zan-ja-beel ~ Fresh Ginger Tea

    Ginger has a soothing effect on the digestive system and indeed some people prefer just to boil the ginger in water and drink this infusion rather than add any other ingredients. this tea is, however, very popular, particularly during the inter months.

    3 cups water
    3 teaspoons freshly-grated ginger
    sugar to taste
    small pinch saffron threads

    Boil water ginger and sugar for five to eight minutes. Strain off the ginger and add the saffron. Pour into a vacuum flask and serve as quickly as possible.
