Warming Ginger Lemon Tea



  • 2 or 3 inches fresh ginger, grated or finely chopped
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 – 2 tsp turmeric (OR 2 inches fresh)
  • 1/4 tsp cloves (or 10 whole)
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • 3 cups fresh water
  • juice of 1 whole lemon
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey

Stick the ginger and spices in fresh water, bring to a boil, and simmer for quite a long time. It’ll make almost a concentrate. You may take this concentrate, place it in your fridge and add to hot water, fresh lemon juice and honey when you need it. But I like it BIG AND STRONG. So once it’s simmered about 15 to 20 minutes, I add the lemon juice and heat gently. Then I add the raw honey and drink right away. This drink with the added turmeric, cloves and cinnamon is so delicious and has tremendous immune-boosting properties.  Drink up!
