late winter wellness tea

ginger-honey teaGinger Honey Tea : There’s nothing like the combination of ginger and honey to fight off winter illness, whether it’s tummy trouble or a head cold.

Ginger promotes healthy digestion, eases nausea, and can help dry excess mucus in the nasal passages, while honey is a natural antiseptic. A touch of lemon adds an antioxidant that’s high in vitamin C, too.

  • 1-inch piece of peeled ginger root
  • 6 cups water
  • 1/3 cup honey
  •  juice of one lemon
  • four bags of your favorite tea
  • a slice of rind, if your lemon is organic
Slice the ginger into coins, and combine with the lemon rind, water, and honey. Bring to a boil in a small pot. Add the tea bags and steep. Add lemon juice, strain into a teapot, and serve.

Many people keep ginger and honey in their pantries and prepare a ginger-honey mixture whenever someone falls ill.
