Lemon Ginger Tea

Lemon Ginger Tea

INGREDIENTS (4-5 servings):

1 lb fresh ginger root

1.5 liters filtered water

Lemons

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Bring pot of water to a boil.

2. Peel and finely grate ginger. Add to boiling water.

3. Let boil for 5 minutes then bring to a simmer for 20 minutes.

4. Strain ginger water using a fine mesh sifter. Let cool then store in a mason jar in the fridge.

5. For a cup of hot lemon ginger tea – heat 1 cup of ginger water in a pot on the stove, pour into mug and squeeze in 1/2 a lemon.

This tea is excellent before or after meals to help reduce symptoms of gas, bloating, acid reflux or digestive discomfort.

I also drink this tea regularly during cold and flu season since ginger has potent antibacterial and antiviral effects.
