I like to mix up all the ingredients ahead of time and store in a canning jar in the fridge.  Then when I want to make up a cup of tea- all I have to do it add the pre-made ingredients to my hot water.  Easy peasy!  

Honey, Lemon and Ginger Tea

1 cup raw local honey- organic
1 organic lemon, thinly sliced
1 “thumb” sized piece fresh ginger, peeled & diced

Simply combine- no need to squeeze the lemons and store in the fridge.  Make a few jars of this and give the ingredients plenty of time to combine and blend in the fridge.

To make the tea, simply add 2-4 tablespoons of your honey, lemon and ginger to 8 ounces hot water.  My sons don’t like it as strong, so they get 2 tablespoons.  I, on the other hand, LOVE this stuff- so I prefer it nice and strong!

Why do we drink this?  Besides the fact that it tastes great- these three ingredients are powerhouses of health and well-being.
