The Culinary Trip around the World stops in Dominica.

The Caribbean country is a perfect destination for outdoor lovers: hiking in the rainforest, diving under waterfalls or swimming in the sea.
It gets hot! But Dominican like it hot, they also have a well known tea culture.
So while researching food and drinks of this country I stumbled upon a refreshing iced tea. A combination of spicy ginger and fresh lemons, combined with lime and mint.

Of course I had to find a cooled version for the upcoming hot summer days. Well, actually Berlin is quite hot right now, so I’m already slurping the ginger tea.
