Lemon Ginger Tea – perfect winter drink that warms the body from the inside out.
Lemon Ginger Tea is perfect winter drink because it warms the body from the inside out. It also reduces inflammation, fights respiratory problems and strengthens immunity. Ginger tea relieves stress, enhances digestive system and relieves migraines.
You can make it more or less spicy by using 1/2 inch or 1 inch large chunk of fresh ginger root. To make it different every time, try adding mint leaves, orange zest, chamomile, vanilla extract or spices like cinnamon and cardamom. Instead of lemon juice, add some milk to your cup of tea.
Any Lemon Ginger Tea leftovers can be stored in the fridge and served cold or re-heated.
