Flu Tea

This tea is a fantastic remedy when taken at the first signs of infection, expecially if you are experiencing mild chills and/or fever.

Place the following ingredients into a mug:

  1. Juice of 1 lemon
  2. 1 teaspoon of finely chopped or grated fresh ginger or ¼ teaspoon dried ginger
  3. A pinch of chili powder or a little chopped fresh chili
  4. 1-2 cloves of garlic crushed or finely chopped
  5. 1-2 teaspoons honey (if desired)

Pour over boiling water and let infuse, covered, for about 10 minutes. Rug up, stay warm and enjoy this delicious brew. It will encourage a mild fever and induce sweating. Fever is one of the body’s first defences against infection and assisting this process will often result in a quick resolution of the symptoms.
