    30 min is a song time to wait when your cramps are so bad it's hard to function, so a 5 min steep in a small amount of hot water with regular dried herb teabags is fine.

    I thought it was wonderful with the amount of ginger called for, but I LOVE ginger. You can't buy tea like this, at least I have never found it. The hardest part is waiting 30 minutes.

    This seems like an awful lot of ginger...6 inch piece in 2 cups of water? I have found other recipes that use a 2 inch piece in 4 cups, so I'd beware making it this the way it is printed here.
