A therapeutic tisane to relieve runny noses, nasal congestion, phlegmy coughs and itchy throats. I just love the heat and the powerful taste.
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)
long before it was cool to be a minimalist, live a sustainable life, become a zero waste warrior we just called it simple living or what some could not resist calling us....'those damn hippies!
