Immune Support Tea

A tea to help you feel better with cold or flu

In this time of year, colds and flu can run rampant in your home.  Here is a tea recipe I found for you by Berris Burgoyne.  She is a ND/herbalist from Australia.  This tea will give a slight rise in body temperature and induce sweating. 

Here are the ingredients:

                 - juice of one lemon

                 -1 to 2 cloves of garlic crushed or finely chopped

                 -1 teaspoon of finely chopped or grated ginger or 1/4 teaspoon of dried ginger

                 - a pinch of chili powder or a little chopped fresh chili

                 - 1-2 teaspoons of honey if desired

Here are the directions:

                 - place the ingredient in a mug

                 - pour boiling water into the mug

                 -cover the mug and let it set for about ten minutes
