Do you need a good ginger tea recipe? Well, I’ve got you covered!
This ginger, honey, and lemon tea reminds me of my childhood. My parents urged us to drink this tea every time we got sick. I love the sweet, lemony, spiciness. And, it’s so easy to make.
This tea is wonderful on a cold fall or winter evening as well. Between the warm water and the ginger, it warms you up quickly. So, cozy up with a good book and warm cup!
The benefits of ginger are widespread. Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties, promotes good digestion by soothing the intestinal tract, promotes good motility, increases the production of bile, and is useful in easing nausea or cold and flu symptoms.
Lemons are loaded with vitamin C and a variety of other vitamins and minerals. They are antibacterial and help ward off unwanted pathogens. Lemons boost liver function, metabolism, and digestion.
Raw honey is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antifungal and is what makes this tea so delicious. I’ve had it without honey and it’s a much more intense experience!
It is important to use fresh ginger and fresh lemon in this recipe to get the full health benefits of this amazing beverage.
I hope you enjoy!
