A therapeutic tea to relieve runny noses, nasal congestion, phlegmy coughs and itchy throats
8 to 10 slices of fresh, unpeeled ginger root
4 cups (1L) boiling water
Juice of ½ lime or ½ lemon
1 tsp. (5ml) honey or agave nectar
Wash ginger root well and thinly slice into 8 to 10 pieces. Boil ginger in water for 10 to 20 minutes (the longer you boil, the stronger and tangier the taste). Add lime or lemon juice and natural sweetener, if desired. Strain and serve. Makes 4 cups (1L)
