A delicious, refreshing, sweet cinnamon and ginger tea, served hot or ice cold. Just lovely for afternoon tea and family gatherings. Sujeonggwa is a popular festive drink and always makes an appearance on Korean holidays such as Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving Day) and Seol (Korean New Year’s Day).
What You'll Need
  • 10 Cups Water
  • 100g Ginger, Peeled and Sliced
  • 50g Cinnamon, Washed
  • ½ Cup Brown Sugar
  • 4 tbsp Honey
  • 10 Pine Nuts
How to Make It
  1. Pour 5 cups of water into a pan and add the ginger. Bring to the boil over a high heat and then lower the heat and simmer for 40-50 minutes. When ready, remove the ginger from the pan.
  2. At the same time, pour 5 cups of water into another pan and add the cinnamon. Bring to the boil over a high heat and then lower the heat and simmer for 40-50 minutes. When ready, remove the cinnamon from the pan.
  3. Place a sieve over a big enough bowl and strain the ginger and cinnamon liquids together.
  4. Pour the combined ginger and cinnamon liquid into a pan and add the brown sugar and honey. Bring to the boil and stir until the brown sugar dissolves.
  5. Serve hot straight away, or pour the tea into a large bowl and put it in the fridge or freezer. When the Sujeonggwa is ice cold, pour it into a cup and sprinkle with pine nuts or walnuts. You can add slices of dried persimmon to Sujeonggwa if you can get it. It is not essential. I can’t get them in Britain, so, I didn’t put them in. Enjoy!
