Shōgayu (Japanese Ginger Tea) with Honey and Lemon

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Shōgayu literally means “ginger hot water” in Japanese and is a delicious tea made in the colder months of the year. With loads of fresh ginger steeped in boiling water, this soothing ginger tea will warm you up from the inside out. Ginger is brimming with antioxidants and anti-inflammatories and paired with vitamin C from the lemon juice; this tea is a great way to give your immune system a boost. Adding honey to this ginger tea not only sweetens it, it’s also a great way to soothe a sore throat. In this episode we have a special guest, see how many times you can spot him hidden throughout the video. Also, stick around to the very end for bloopers! #gingertea #ginger #cookingwithdog

my mother used to make this for me when I was sick, so I always associate this with wanting to feel better. So warm and comforting.

GayLovinHoe _Sam_ says:

I was very skeptical at first because I don't favor ginger, and I don't really like honey in my tea's, but this is so good!

What an adorable collaboration! Your shogayu looks so wonderfully aromatic. I have extra lemons and ginger on hand. I’m all set. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Erin Uber says:

Hello, Marc! Shōgayu is so delicious, and thank you for the video lesson on how to make it! It's a wonderful surprise to see Francis in the video, too. That is so much fun! I need to try making this. I have powdered ginger honey tea. I drink it as a hot beverage, but I also use it as an ingredient. I blend it with pear juice or apple juice and make granita in the summer. It's so refreshing. Thanks again for the great video!

When Chef mentioned Marc, I thought I knew the name from somewhere, but couldn't place it. As soon as I saw your face, I knew it! Marc as in Marc from Bento Expo! I didn't know you had a youtube channel, too! It was soooo cute to see Francis on his mug, wagging his little tail and visiting another youtube channel. Please do more videos like this, it is so adorable!
