This caffeine-free ginger thyme tea is easy to make at home and perfect for when you're feeling under the weather.
Ingredients
  • One 3-inch piece of fresh ginger, unpeeled and thinly sliced
  • 
4 lemon slices
  • 
4 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 
Honey (or your sweetener of choice), to taste
Instructions
  1. Place the sliced ginger and four cups of water in a kettle or saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer, uncovered, for five to ten minutes (simmering for longer will yield a more intense ginger flavor). Remove from the heat and steep for five minutes.
  2. Put a lemon slice and a thyme sprig in each mug. Pour the tea through a fine-mesh strainer into the mugs.
  3. Season with honey (or your favorite sweetener) to taste. (I use about half a teaspoon of honey per serving.) Remove the lemon slice after a minute, or leave it in for a stronger citrus flavor. Enjoy hot and feel better!
