“Lemon and ginger tea is on top of the list of benefits of its ability to strengthen your immunity. This is due to the presence of high levels of anti-oxidants in ginger. Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C which can heal wounds and preserve the strength of bones and teeth. In the onset of cold and flu, the ginger lemon tea can act as an effective anti-biotic.” – VegKitchen

Since moving to London I have noticed that during these winter periods, my immune system becomes very sensitive – making me more prone to getting the flu and feel sickly for quite sometime. Lately, I’ve been slowly getting over a cold and constant head ache colds. By brewing my very own homemade lemon and ginger tea, I get to make it as strong or mild in flavour as i like.

You will need:

4 lemons
1-2 ginger (depending on how strong you’d like it)
1 tablespoon of honey

Bring your water to boil in the pan, then peel and roughly chop the ginger and add that into the water, leaving it to boil for 20-25mins. Then lower the heat and add in the squeezed lemon juice. Add the honey before skimming any impurities. Taste the tea to see whether you’d like to add more lemon or honey to give it a more citrus or sweet taste. Serve the tea right away.
