Flu Fighter Tea

I love this combo for it's soothing warmth.

This is a great tea for most upper respiratory tract infections. It is antimicrobial, decongestant,  fever modulating, hydrating and breaks down mucous.

I like it especially when I'm all stuffed up and can't taste much- the taste and aroma of all these spices cuts through even the 'thickest' headcold.

Method & Ingredients:

Bring 1L water to the boil and add...
  • 1 Tbs raw honey
  • 2 Tsp grated ginger
  • 1 lemon sliced, unwaxed ideally.
  • 1 cinnamon stick.
  • 6 cloves
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced.
  • 1/4 Tsp fresh chilli, chpped.

High simmer for 5 minutes. Cool slightly before drinking warm.
