Lemon Ginger Tea

Lemon Ginger Tea is the perfect early morning pick-me-up. It leaves you refreshed and awake without the 3 o’clock caffeine crash that comes from drinking coffee.

It’s also the perfect drink when you’re feeling sick. At the first signs of a stuffy nose or scratchy throat, brew up a big pot of this tea and relish in its immune system boosting properties. Lemon juice has high quantities of vitamin C, while ginger and cayenne pepper help to clear the sinuses.[1]

a small knob of ginger, grated
½ lemon, juiced with the seeds removed
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

In a small pot, boil enough water to fill a tea mug. Add the grated ginger into the boiling water and allow to simmer for 3 minutes. Pour the lemon juice into the mug. Pour the boiling ginger water into the mug and sprinkle cayenne pepper on top. If the tea is too bitter, add a small spoonful of honey. Serve hot.
