  • Cut the ginger into fine slices. Rinse the mint leaves and star anise.

  • Add the lemon juice, peel, ginger slices, star anise, mint leaves and honey. Stir well and bring to boil.
  • Turn off the heat, let it steep for another five minutes and pour the water through a sieve.
  • If you want cold tea, let it cool down further and put it in the fridge for two hours.
  • Fill your water jug with the tea, add ice cubes, some fresh lemon slices and sprigs of mint.


You can vary endlessly with flavors. If you feel like a summery touch, you can use cucumber strings. Or would you like it a bit spicier, go for ginger and rosemary or cherries with cloves …
