    Tips to the recipe:

    - - Instead of black tea can be used red - tea, hibiscus. However, remember that hibiscus reception increases acidity of gastric juices, so it should not be used for people suffering from peptic ulcer and gastritis.

    - - Honey can replace sugar and lemon - orange.

    - - As a spice for grog also great captive star anise, which gives the drink taste notes of star anise. You can add a bit of ginger - root, grated on a fine grater or finished ground.

    - - Brewing tea is best in pottery - it has excellent heat capacity. Also suitable glass or porcelain, but welding "does not breathe" in them. Serve grog is also better in clay cups - so it will retain heat longer.

    - - Remember, honey should be added in the last instance, in the already hot drink, boil it can not be, otherwise you lose all useful properties.
