This tea starts with a little ginger root that looks like a person! Literally.
I have been suffering from laryngitis for about four weeks, drinking all sorts of teas. Only to feel my throat still sore after 30 minutes.
A friend recently told me about using ginger, honey, and lemon, to create a tea. I was excited because nothing else seemed to work for me, and I just got right to it. Once I tried this tea, I was sold! It absolutely relived me of my throat tightness and pain. It even allowed me to talk clearer.
So I had to figure out how to make this tea, and this recipe is how it was done.
This tea takes about 20 minutes to make, and you can make a large batch to last you the whole day. You at least want it fresh daily for all the nutritional benefits.
Makes 2 cups as is.
- 1 ginger root
- 1 lemon or fresh lemon juice
- Organic Honey
- 2 cups of purified water
- Pour your water into a medium sized sauce pan and start a boil, or use a tea kettle. Boil the water until really hot and bubbly, or until the kettle whistles.
- If you desire, skin the ginger. Taking a cheese grinder, with the smallest holes, start grinding your ginger into shreds.
- Once your ginger root is ready, measure out 1 Tablespoon and a 1/2 and put it into an measuring cup.
- Add your boiling water on top.
- You should have 16 ounces of fluid, for two cups.
- Next, allow the ginger to steep in the water for 6 minutes.
- Using a strainer, strain your ginger water to remove almost all of the ginger particles.
- Add your lemon, and honey to taste.
- Sip it, don’t down it.
- if you like it bitter, less honey. If sweet, a little more honey.
