Lemon Ginger Tea
I'm all about treating naturally, and this tea is my first line of defence against colds. It's a little spicy and a lot delicious, which makes it a medicine I love to take.
This tea is full of immune boosters, so don't be afraid to drink it any time you feel under the weather. You can drink it when you're healthy as a preventative measure too! The ingredients in this tea are anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and can be soothing for throats, too. If you have access to dried Reishi mushrooms (commonly found in health food stores), add some to your tea for an even bigger immune boost. Ginger is a great digestive aid, so you can drink this tea for sore stomachs as well.
When I'm sick, I usually need some extra encouragement to get through the day- Ben Howard is the best for this.
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
1 slice lemon
1 tsp honey, or to taste
(optional) 2 slices dried Reishi mushroom
Add ginger and honey to a mug. Squeeze the slice of lemon into the mug, then add the slice to the mug. Pour boiling water into the mug, stir, sip.
