Ginger Lemon Honey Cayenne Tea

This tea is amazing…  Supposedly it is good for ‘curing’ colds and ‘boosting’ the immune system. Healthy or not it’s a great drink when it’s cold outside. There are a lot of different versions of ‘Ginger Cayenne Tea’. Here is my recipe. (serves two)

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups Water
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons chopped Ginger
  • 1 – 2 tsp Cayenne Powder depending on how spicy you like it
  • 1 Lemon

Once the water starts to boil you can take the pot off the heat and pour it into your mug(s). I would pour it over a sink in case of spillage…  Make sure to let it cool a bit before you drink it.
