Starfruit makes an elegant tea when steeped with fresh ginger, orange, lemon and honey.
Recipe type: Fruit
Cuisine: Fruit
Serves: 4 cups
  • 4 c. water
  • 1 large Star Fruit
  • 2” piece fresh ginger, peeled
  • 1 3-4” piece orange peel
  • 1 lemon
  • 2-3 Tb. raw honey
  • Fresh mint (optional)
  1. Pour water into a pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Thinly slice the Star Fruit, ginger and lemon; use a vegetable peeler to get a peel from the orange.
  3. Once water boils, remove from heat and add the Star Fruit, ginger, lemon slices and orange peel. Allow to steep, uncovered, about 20 minutes, then stir in the honey, to taste.
  4. Strain into a cozy mug, wrap your hands around it, inhale the wonderful aroma, sip it slowly, and enjoy :)
1) Tip: to easily peel the ginger root, use the edge of a spoon to scrape the delicate skin away.

2) The tea cools quite a bit during the steeping process, so if it's not hot enough to your liking, simply warm on the stove or microwave.
