Ginger has a specific taste – you either love it or you don’t like it at all. In the first case you’re lucky, because ginger is quite purifying. Are you down with the flu or a cold? This healing tea will get you up on your feet in no time.
· 1 liter water
· 5 cm ginger root, peeled
· Juice and zest of 1 lemon
· Honey, add to taste
Bring the water to a boil, add the ginger, lemon juice and zest and turn off the heat. Let steep for 10 minutes, strain the mixture and flavour to taste with the honey. If the tea came out too strong, which depends on the width of the root, add some more hot water.
