Lemon, Ginger, Honey Tea [AIP, Paleo]
Honey and lemon clearly go together really well, and I’ve had honey and lemon tea a ton when I’m feeling sick or just during the winter months to keep warm.
But, recently, when I was visiting Thailand, I found that everyone was drinking seriously strong ginger tea. In fact, ginger tea was so popular, you can purchase ginger powder to make into tea at home without the brewing!
So, I started experimenting with different variations of ginger tea. While I like their seriously strong ginger teas, sometimes they burned a little too much and they had way too much sugar in them!
So, I found adding fresh slices of ginger in with fresh slices of lemon and honey to make a more relaxing afternoon drink. Plus, you can change this tea up by adding black tea instead of hot water or by boiling the ginger in the water first to create a stronger taste.
Oh, and of course, this drink is very AIP-friendly (Paleo autoimmune protocol).

This tea is seriously easy to make at home – enjoy in the winter months or in the summer months (by adding some ice). It’s also soothing if you have a cold, sinus infection, flu, or sore throat.
STEP 1: Place all the ingredients into a cup.
STEP 2: Steep for 5 minutes.
If you prefer a stronger tea, you can boil the ingredients in a saucepan. You can also brew a larger amount in one go. You can also make this into an iced tea by waiting for the tea to cool and then adding ice to it. For a caffeinated version of this, use black tea instead of boiling water.
