This potent homemade Ginger Tea is an effective recipe to help prevent and treat a cold or flu. It’s loaded with broad-spectrum antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant and anti-parasitic properties, making it the perfect natural remedy! So, if you find yourself surrounded by sick people or maybe you’re trying to treat a cold or flu that hit you hard and fast, this recipe is for you.

DID YOU KNOW? Ginger has broad-spectrum antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant and anti-parasitic properties, making it the perfect natural remedy to help prevent and treat certain conditions.

Ginger has a very long history of use in various forms of traditional and alternative medicine. It’s been used to aid digestion, reduce nausea, and help fight the flu and common cold, to name a few of its purposes.

The unique fragrance and flavor of ginger come from its natural oils, the most important of which is gingerol. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger. It’s responsible for much of ginger’s medicinal properties.

I recommend consuming 2-4 cups of this tea daily for prevention and/or treatment of the cold or flu.

Additionally, this tea is excellent before or after meals to help reduce symptoms of gas, bloating, acid-reflux or digestive discomfort.

Ingredients
 

  • 1 lb fresh ginger root
  • 1.5 liters filtered water
  • Lemons
  • Honey, optional

Instructions
 

  • Bring 1.5 liters of filtered water to a boil in a small stove-top pot.
  • Peel and finely grate ginger. Add to boiling water.
  • Let boil for 5 minutes then bring to a simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Strain ginger tea into a mason jar using a fine mesh sifter. Let cool then store in the fridge.

For a cup of hot lemon ginger tea

  • Heat 3/4 cup of ginger tea in a pot, pour into mug and squeeze in 1/2 a lemon. Add 1-2 tsp honey. Stir and sip slowly.

Notes

  • You'll end up with enough ginger liquid to make approx. 6-8 teas, so you can easily enjoy hot lemon ginger tea throughout the week without grating and boiling ginger each time! Just store in a mason jar in the fridge.
  • This drink tastes great unsweetened, so if you're following a certain diet or just prefer an unsweetened tea, leave out the honey/natural sweetener.
