Honey, to taste
Peel the ginger and slice thinly.
Boil the ginger in water on the stove for at least 10 minutes. For a stronger and tangier tea, allow to boil for 20 minutes or more, and use more slices of ginger. Feel free to add as much ginger and simmer it for as long as you want.
Remove from the stove, pour into your kettle and add lemon, honey and cinnamon to taste.
*Remember good healthy diet is vital to great health and a strong immune system. A bulk of your diet should be made up of unprocessed, natural foods such as fresh fruits, veggies, legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
