Zero-Waste Tea Recipe

No reviews


Units Scale
  • Peel of 1 orange
  • 1 knob fresh ginger, chopped (1 knob of ginger = about 1 tbsp chopped ginger )
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp fresh squeezed orange juice


  1. Wash, slice, and peel orange.
  2. Cut orange rind into small cubes.
  3. Peel and chop ginger.
  4. Add water to pan and bring to boil.
  5. Once water is boiled, add the chopped orange rinds and ginger. Let mixture simmer for about 3 minutes.
  6. Add cinnamon, honey and fresh orange juice. Note: If you have a sweet tooth, feel free to add more honey and orange juice.
  7. Let mixture simmer for an additional 7-10 minutes. Note: For stronger flavor, let mixture sit for an additional 5 minutes. Any longer than that and I’ve found it starts to get bitter.
  8. Strain and serve.
