Ginger Tea for the Sickies

It may not completely cure your cold, but it will definitely help soothe a sore throat.  At the first signs of a cold, I drink 1 to 2 ginger teas per day, and I find my symptoms subside quickly. Since it is caffeine-free, it safe for most children 2 years and older (you just need a little less ginger- and maybe more honey)!


– 12 oz of hot water
– 1/2 to 1 T honey
– 1-2 T grated ginger (1 to 2 teaspoons for children)

I hope you stay healthy during this cold/flu season!

Ginger tip: you can use bottled ginger, but I prefer the taste of natural ginger root. Ginger root stores well in the freezer.  Prior to freezing, break the ginger into 2-inch pieces and place in an airtight bag.
