Ginger Tea

Warm, soothing, immune boosting ginger tea!

Ginger is an amazing ingredient! Whether you have a cold or an upset stomach, ginger can help! When you aren’t feeling well, what better than a warm soothing drink? Combined with cinnamon and honey, ginger becomes a power house! Here’s my recipe for Ginger Tea:

1/2 inch ginger root,  peeled

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tbsp honey (preferably local and raw)

boiling water

1. In a mug place ginger, cinnamon, and honey. Pour boiling water over it until mug is full.

2. Allow the mixture to steep for about 5 minutes or until the liquid has cooled off enough to drink safely.

3. Remove the ginger and stir the tea to make sure the honey has dissolved. Enjoy!

Do you drink ginger tea? How do you make it? What else do you do to help yourself fight illness?

One thought on “Ginger Tea

  1. I adore ginger; it is so warming and comforting. Your tea sounds really wholesome. I’ve only ever used dried ginger in teabags to make ginger tea, but I’m going to try using your lovely homemade recipe next time!
