How to make your Ginger and Lemon Tea
Cut and peel a one and half inch piece of ginger
Juice half a lemon
Add one cup of boiling water to a blender (like a Nutribullet) and blend the ginger so it becomes ginger water. Add to a teapot with a strainer. (To get the full benefits from the ginger you need to break it down into the water)
Add the lemon juice to your cup
Pour the hot ginger water from the teapot into your cup with the lemon
Add a sweetner if required. (If using honey, wait until the tea has cooled a little)
If you’ve got a cold or flu, add a twist of black pepper!
