Ginger, Lemon and Honey Tea
This is a great beverage for the fall and winter months.
Ginger is an amazing natural medicine which helps open circulation, boost appetite/metabolism, and clear toxins (ama) from the lungs and digestive tract. It helps alleviate mucus, stagnancy or congestion in the body-mind and is ideal for balancing kapha dosha
This recipe is heating and stimulating, and will increase pitta and vata (can be taken occasionally or to treat colds).
¼ inch fresh ginger, chopped or grated
1 cup boiling water
1 tsp raw, local honey (or a few drops stevia)
Add ginger to your teapot and cover with boiling water. Add a squeeze of lemon and a little cool water (to taste). Allow to steep approx. 10 minutes. When you drink has cooled slightly, add honey and enjoy.
