Lemon – Ginger Immune-tea

Updated: Jun 1, 2022

Few handy family recipes that go from generation to generation that never fails to delight. A simple lemon -ginger tea is one of them. This easy but effective remedy is my immune tonic. From childhood onwards( as I was in a boarding school, always away from home), Whenever I feel sore or itchy in my throat, my two ingredients “immune-tea” still works for me. In hostels, I used to have a thermos, in which I can easily add all the ingredients, let it simmer, and have a few sips of the soothing tea every few hours. It has a soothing effect that makes me feel better. I add the lemon rind to it. It contains more Vitamin C per ounce than the fruit itself. Try not to get the white membrane beneath the rind. You can be creative with the ingredients by adding cinnamon, star anise, nutmeg to enhance the taste as per your palate. Trust me, just lemon and ginger works well.
