I put a mug/cup of water to boil.
Add a 3/4 inch piece of ginger, crushed with a mallet to it and let the water boil a couple of minutes (to get the ginger essence in), then pour over tea-leaves (amt. depends on what tea leaves are used - I use Darjeeling and throw in one and a half heaped tsp) and let steep two mins. or until leaves are settled at the bottom of the pot.
Pour into mug add milk, sugar and enjoy!
