Fresh Lemon-Ginger Tea with Honey


lemon ginger tea

Ginger has so many great qualities.  It can help with nausea, and is great for digestion.  It is thought to have anti-inflammatory properties.  It can help with symptoms of cold or flu, or headaches.  These are just a few of the many benefits of ginger.

Fresh ginger tea is very easy to make.  All you need is a

~ fresh ginger root

~ lemon

~ anything else you would like to add (such as honey, sugar, etc).

For one mug, you probably want to use about a tablespoon of ginger, but you can adjust the recipe and also make one large batch at a time.

Sliced Ginger

Peel, then slice or grate your ginger.  Using slices (instead of grated ginger) it may require you to steep it a bit longer.


Boil or allow to steep.  Much like infused water, you can let this sit for some time, but boiling the ginger will be quicker and give you a stronger flavor.

You can strain out the ginger, although I eat the pieces in the bottom of my cup.

Add lemon and honey, or any other ingredients as desired.  If I let the ingredients infuse for a while, I simply add a slice of lemon, but you can also add lemon juice if you are doing a quick steep.

I drink a lot of this during the cold and flu season, after dinner, or simply if we have fresh ginger left over from a recipe.
