1. Prepare the ginger syrup: Put water and sugar into a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Bring just to a boil to dissolve the sugar. Add the chopped ginger and allow syrup to simmer for about 30 minutes. Strain and reserve the syrup, discarding the ginger. Chill the syrup in the refrigerator until needed.
2. Prepare the tea: Put tea in a heatproof glass or measuring cup. Put at least 10 ounces of water into the kettle and select the Delicate setting. Pour 8-ounces of hot water into the cup. Allow to steep for about 5 minutes. Strain. Refrigerate tea until chilled.
3. Prepare the cocktail: Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Put cocktail ingredients into the shaker. Shake well and pour evenly between 2 martini glasses. Serve immediately.
