  • 2 inch slice of a fresh ginger root (thoroughly washed)
  • 2 tsp of dried peppermint
  • 4 cups of water (filtered)
  • 2 tbsp of organic honey


  • To make ginger root tea for bad cough, grate the ginger into fine slices (12-14 slices).
  • Add the ginger, dried peppermint and water into a pot and bring it to a boil.
  • Cover the mixture and allow it to steep for 5-7 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the honey.
  • You can take small sips of this concentrated tea once every few hours to soothe your cough and coat your throat. Drinking entire cups of this mixture is not necessary for best results.


You can also add a pinch of black pepper to this tea, which can further help cut through mucus and eliminate congestion.
