I would like to share my simple “Ginger & Lemon ? Tea” recipe! I just love drinking this in the morning especially in the winter months. Not only do I enjoy this very flavorful tea, the benefits of ginger are astounding!
Can you imagine, by just drinking this tea- I see a big difference in my food craving. I read on “Healthline” that ginger may play a role in weight loss. I believe that!
Also when it comes to inflammation, I feel that it has reduced the inflammation in my fingers. I also have concerns about indigestion. And it is believed that not being able to empty your stomach frequently – causes problems in indigestion. I’m the perfect candidate for that problem. But guess what, when I drink this tea in about 3 consecutive days, I feel much better and lighter! I’m able to empty my stomach and overall feel good about myself.
I’m just sharing how my body reacts with the amazing and mighty Ginger and Lemon ? combo.
However, everyone’s body responds differently and not everyone can withstand the taste of this soapy and musty (my husband would describe it ?), and strong/spicy aroma – as some would characterize it.
Nevertheless, if you like a combination of a lemony, citrus / spicy, warm, peppery taste, then this tea is for you!
Before I take you to my simple recipe, I would like to add that growing up, my mother always served my brothers and I ginger tea. Especially if we had sore throats, or just not feeling well. So I guess, ginger and I go way back ???
Try to incorporate this tea into your diet. See and feel the wonderful health benefits it has for your body!
My Ginger & Lemon Tea Recipe
- 1 inch Fresh Ginger Root (peel skin first)
- 1/4 Lemon Thinly sliced
- 1 Cup Boiled Water
- Honey or Maple Syrup optional
- Pour boiling water in a cup.
- Add thinly sliced ginger and lemon.
- Steep for 10 minutes then strain. (Optional: You can add 1 tsp of honey or maple syrup) I drink this warm
I also want to share that if you do not have the time to go to the food store to buy fresh ginger and lemon, or you just ran out of it — I recommend to have organic powdered ginger in the pantry at all times. Of course ready squeezed lemon juice that you can store in your fridge is also helpful.
This is the brand I use for powdered ginger.
ENJOY ? ?
