Green Mint Ginger Tea


For the past week my home has been hit with the nasty flu/cold.  I spent most of last week, hacking with the most annoying cough.  From experience ginger and mint have always been my “go to” for a cold.  It’s actually not a bad combo to have as tea on a regular basis as well.  It also works wonders for upset stomach.  Here’s my go to recipe tea specialty.


2 cups of water

1 inch long piece of ginger root

1 green tea bag

Few sprigs of mint

1 tablespoon of honey

1.  Bring ginger root and water to a boil and pour into a tea pot or cup to seep with mint and green tea for at least 5 minutes.

2. Pour tea into a cup and sweeten with honey.
