Three reasons to drink ginger tea this winter:
#1 It’s incredible ability to help stimulate digestion
#2 It helps relieve winter colds and sore throats
#3 It relieves congestion and runny nose
HOW TO MAKE:
5 cups purified water
3 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated or finely chopped
6 Tbsp raw sugar (or 5 Tbsp honey)
1/8 tsp black pepper
4 Tbsp lemon juice (or lime)
3 sprigs of mint (optional)
Bring water to a boil. Add ginger to water and sprigs of mint if desired. Turn down heat. Let boil gently at lower temperature for 5 minutes. Turn off heat, add desired sweetener and put the lid on the pot for 5 more minutes. Let rest without heat so flavors will meld.
Strain liquid into a heat resistant container or scoop out mint and most of the ginger with a slotted spoon. The second option will leave bits of ginger in the tea that you can chew on if you like. Then add citrus and black pepper.
Stir while thinking your favorite thoughts. Serve hot.
