I got a hot water heater the other day. It was one of those things that everyone told me I should get because of its convenience and I must say it has been just that but the first cup of tea I made was really tough. First I found some tea I thought I’d like at the korean supermarket (It’s Gogi rice tea) then I had to get the hot water heater, then I had to wash it, then I brewed two batches of hot water to rinse the container, then I brewed my final batch of hot water and poured it in this plastic cup which promptly melted, then I went out to get some styrofoam cups at 7-11 because I just threw away a mug I never thought I’d use, then I brewed my first batch of tea. It was pretty good and I have a cup of hot tea in front of me in this old company thermos. I must say tea, and hot water, are some of those things that I never thought I’d be much of a fan of when I was younger but have grown to love.

With a hot water heater established – fresh ginger tea, very effective in fending off cold, excellent for winter. Peel fresh ginger. Grade peeled ginger and collect into a cup. Simply pour hot water over it. Let it sit. Fresh ginger is spicy. Without adding anything else, it adds a kick that oddly resembles carbonated soft drinks. If the taste is too potent to the liking, add lemon juice and honey – ginger lemonade.
A side note: perseverance is a quite strength, yet is one of the greatest. It doesn’t weaken with age.

That sounds great! I’m gonna have to try that sometime. The perseverance thing I mean.
