Try my family’s Honey Lemon Ginger Tea Recipe for a zippy everyday beverage or natural cold relief. Not to mention ginger is well known for its digestive benefits. The measurements don’t need to be exact. Just add a little here or there to suit your taste preference. I’ve added my basic guidelines to the recipe below.


  • ginger root (about 1 inch depending on thickness – you’ll need 1 teaspoon grated)
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 24 teaspoons honey
  • boiling water


  1. Peel ginger root and grate using a lemon zester or other fine grating tool until you have about 1 teaspoon worth. Place ginger into a mug.
  2. Squeeze in 1/2 a lemon and about 2-4 teaspoons of honey, depending on how sweet you like your tea. Add hot water to fill the mug, stir, and let steep for about 5 minutes.
  3. When beverage is safe to drink, serve, and enjoy!


Note: Recipe easily multiplies to serve more.

To make vegan: Try subbing maple syrup or agave. Of course, sugar always works, but I’ve seen the maple syrup used in similar concoctions.
