Cold/Flu Fighting Tea – Nip that bug before it nips your buds!

December 8, 2014

Around the house Bobby and Jilly have been saying, “We’re lucky to get to this time of year and we haven’t caught a cold or flu bug yet.”

But, maybe you’ve been through a long week – an Arctic blast followed by a huge snow dump that left everyone exhausted. You got a little overtired and next thing you know – there’s that trickle down your throat, you’re feeling a little achy, and you might be coming down with something. Oh no… not again.

Here’s a quick recipe for a really good cold/flu fighting tea, recommended by many. Drink this 2-3 times/day and see if it doesn’t hold off on any bug threatening to invade. It tastes just like that Neo-Something product, without the chemicals!

Cold/Flu Fighting Tea

3 c. boiling water

Juice of half a lemon (use remainder of lemon to create zest) Lemon

3-4 slices (1/4” thick) of fresh ginger

1½ Tbsp. honey


Bring 3 cups water to a boil.

Pour into a large cup or bowl.

Add shaved ginger, lemon zest, and honey.

Allow to steep 5-10 minutes.

Strain and pour into a mug.

Sip while warm.

From Jilly’s house to yours – feel better soon!
