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
- 2-4 teaspoons honey
- boiling water
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
