  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tsp tea leaves (for each cup)
  • 1 tsp ginger finely grated
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • tsp honey/sugar


  • To make lemon ginger tea, first, heat 3 cups of water in a sauce pan. 
    A pot of boiling water
  • Add grated ginger to the water and bring it to a boil. 
  • As it starts to boil, add lemon juice and tea leaves and allow the mixture to sit for 15-20 minutes at low heat.
  • You can add honey to it, if you desire, but the mixture of ginger and lemon on its own is quite a flavorful and delicious combination. Enjoy the piping hot tea.


You can also add a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg in the end to enhance the flavor, if you prefer.
You can also add a tinge of turmeric if you want, as it has anti-inflammatory properties.
You can add a dash of orange juice to the tea, if the lemon flavor is too strong. This will give it a natural sweet and tangy flavor. 
While lemon ginger tea by itself has tremendous curative potential, you can add a tsp of whiskey, brandy, bourbon, scotch or rum to it, right before hitting the bed, should you have a bad cold. The combination will work wonders.
