Ginger Tea For A Cold

Its cold and flu season again.  This is a tea that I drink all winter and its been on my website a very long time… except that in this version, I add some cayenne pepper to help your immune system fight those viruses. Plus, it just tastes good!





…this will warm up the frostiest person in your family, and it’s great for those who are ailing.

4 cups water
2 oz fresh ginger root, peeled and sliced
5 whole cloves
Juice of one lemon

Bring all to a boil, simmer for 2-3 minutes. Strain into cups and sweeten as desired with honey or stevia preferably but go easy on the sugar, its not so good for your immune system.

    Got it. I had cloves of garlic on my mind. Thanks for clarifying for me.

    Your ingredients call for 5 whole cloves (of what?)

      Hi Vicki,
      The ingredient here is “Cloves”, the spice. So, 6 whole cloves, not ground cloves but whole. 🙂

      I can easily see how you’d think that! Glad it’s cleared up. If you try the tea, I’d be interested to know what you think. 🙂
