Make A Quart of Lemon Ginger Tea
Place 1/2 cup of thinly sliced ginger into 3 1/2 cups water in a medium sized saucepan
(You can also grate the ginger if you want it to be a stronger. If the ginger is organic then you don't necessary need to peel it, but I usually scrape off a bit of the skin. If it’s not organic then go ahead a peel the ginger first.)
Bring the water to a boil. Boil for about 3-5 minutes, turn down heat and let simmer for 5 more minutes.
Remove from heat, cover and let steep until the liquid cools to a drinkable temperature.
Strain out the ginger.
Add about 3 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice to the tea.
Add honey to taste - I love Manuka honey for all its amazing antibacterial properties.
Then you just need to stir and enjoy!
The brew can last in the fridge for up to a week.
