Ginger Tea Recipe

During the cold and flu season especially, it is important to keep our immune systems strong. Here is a recipe for a great tea to drink to prevent getting sick, but to also soothe you and help you get better sooner if you do.

• Chop Ginger root-the more you put, the stronger the tea. I put about a palm full.
• Place it in a large pot of water and bring to a boil.
• Lower heat to a simmer and let simmer for anywhere between 30 mins or longer (sometimes we simmer, and drink, and simmer more for a whole day!).
(Note: The longer you simmer the stronger the tea. The water will become light yellow, then a rich golden color. That is a good time to drink it.)
• Serve with honey and lemon. No more coughing!
