ayurvedic perspective

Ginger, lemon, and honey tea is a remedy for colds and sinus infection. Lemon, like all sours, is a secretagogue which encourages liquidation of mucus and a protective coating of fluids on an otherwise irritated lung and throat. Honey aids expectoration. Ginger, like many pungents, opens up circulation and the breath. Add a pinch of black pepper and salt to make it stronger.

should i wait until the tea is room temp before adding the honey? does heat destroy the healthful properties and/or create toxins? is there a difference between heating raw honey vs. non-raw honey?

Crushing the ginger makes all the difference!

Instead of black pepper, I use tumeric or red pepper flakes.

I love the fresh ginger and it makes me feel invigorated. Have always heard you should drink hot water with lemon juice first thing in the morning but I wasn't crazy about the taste...now I get it through my ginger/lemon/honey tea! Thanks for the great recipe!
