Ginger, Lemon & Honey Tea
Recipe by Dragon
Whenever I'm under the weather I always turn to my Ginger, Lemon & Honey tea to make me feel better. I drink it hot and cold. I always make a huge batch that lasts in the fridge for up to a week. Why ginger, lemon and honey? Each ingredient has medicinal qualities and when combined, they create a soothing tea that can relieve cold/flu symptoms and boost the immune system. I also think it's really delicious so this 'medicine' goes down easy. Enjoy!
Makes: 8 cups
8 cups water
1/2 cup fresh ginger, peeled, chopped small
Peel of 2 lemons (just the zest not the pith), cut into thick strips
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup honey (add more or less depending on how sweet you want it)
pinch of salt
1. Bring the water to a boil in a large pan.
2. Once it is boiling, add the ginger, lemon peel, lemon juice, honey & salt.
3. Cover it and reduce to a simmer for 20 minutes. Strain the tea.
4. Enjoy the tea immediately or let it come to room temperature then store in the fridge.
