There’s something soothing about a warm cup of tea when you’re feeling run down. But not any old tea will do. With people dropping left right and centre at the moment with colds, flu, and all manner of dreaded bugs, I thought I’d share this immune boosting tea recipe – a remedy I rely on to keep myself and my family well.
I also use this remedy to treat a respiratory infection. It really helps relieve symptoms and shorten the duration and severity of the infection. This immune tea is my take on the infamous hot lemon and honey drink my mum used to make me as a child, only packing much more of a medicinal punch.
So why is it so good?
So now for my immune tea…
500ml of boiling hot water
1 organic ginger tea bag or a 1 cm slice of fresh ginger root, diced or grated
¼ teaspoon turmeric powder or a 1 cm fresh piece of root, diced or grated
1 tablespoon of manuka or raw honey (more or less to taste)
Juice and zest of one lemon
Simmering the ginger and turmeric root in the water for 5-10 minutes will make a more potent brew.
Add a tablespoon of extra virgin coconut oil to the tea.
