Hot Lemon – Cold & Flu Buster Tea

Just what it sounds like. I am not a doctor. This is not health care advice. This is a recipe that I use at home.

Hot Lemon Tea

1 bag quality echinacea tea
3-4 slices fresh ginger root
3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp raw honey
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp clove
cayenne pepper to taste


In a large cup of hot filtered water, steep the tea bag and the sliced ginger (you may omit the tea bag if you’d like). Add the lemon juice, honey and spices and stir well. The tea will be cloudy. If you’d like, you may strain the tea through cheesecloth to remove the ground spices and ginger.
