Fresh lemon and ginger tea has been one of my staple daily inclusions since October last year. Apart from it being a really good anti-inflammatory and immune boosting tea it also tastes delicious!
I do recommend it to patients quite a lot so forgive me if you have heard this all before but I thought I would mention it here as many people ask me how to make it. It’s simple.
- fresh lemon chunk (to taste)
- fresh ginger (to taste) thinly sliced
- raw honey (optional)
Squeeze the lemon into a mug. Add the thinly sliced ginger (increased surface area contact with water) or a chunk if you can’t be bothered to slice. Then fill the mug with boiling water. Voila lemon and ginger tea!
You can add honey if you wish. I often add some turmeric (many good properties) to it.
This tea is also nice chilled in the summer.
I usually have a mug of this tea on the go and just top up the ingredients as needed during the day. I always top it up with boiling water before I go to bed so that I can drink it first thing in the morning.
