Irish Gold – Colf and 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.

Irish Gold

2” fresh ginger root
2 tbsp raw honey
2 organic lemons, juiced
½ qt filtered water


Boil about a 1/2 quart of water or enough to fill a medium pot 3/4 full. Turn off the heat and drop in the raw ginger and cover pot and steep for 15 minutes. Add lemon and honey to the pot AFTER you are finished simmering ginger and after the liquid cools to lukewarm temp but still hot enough to dissolve the honey. Strain it into your cup or just pour it off leaving the ginger behind. When you want more, just heat it back up-I leave the pot on the stove all day and heat up when needed so I only need to make it once a day. Sometimes I’ll stir in a teaspoon of cinnamon which is an effective antiviral and antibiotic and can help relieve a cough and lower fever. Note: if you are making a single cup, just pour the steeped liquid into a cup, squeeze 1 lemon in and add honey to taste.
