I love tea – you already know that.
But did you know that I also love lemons? I love the look, smell and taste of them. The only time you will catch me drinking water without a slice of lemon is if I’m dying of thirst or I’m being polite because someone poured me a glass. And, as you may have guessed, lemons are a frequent addition to my cups of tea.
This super simple, from scratch, Lemon Ginger Tea recipe is perfect to try this time of year.
Need to keep warm, boost your immune system or soothe that stubborn tickle in your throat? You should seriously try this tea. It is subtly spicy, yet still refreshing and can be made as sweet or tangy as desired. And did I mention that it is jam packed with health benefits?
Ginger is a powerful root with anti-nasusea and anti-inflammatory properties. Lemon and honey are both antibacterial and rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. The magical trio can combat colds, aid in weight loss and improve your mood.
