- Put the ginger in the tea pot
- Add brown sugar according to your taste

- Strain and enjoy
Is brown sugar healthier than white sugar? This is a claim however, the reality is that brow sugar and white sugar are not much different. Although brown sugar contains calcium, potassium, iron and magnesium while white sugar doesn’t, these minerals are present in only tiny amounts – the real difference between the two is in the taste. Brown sugar tastes better, that’s all.
This is our favourite tea pot. It’s heat resistant and without the glass insert it can be used for Artisan Tea. Beautiful presentation!
