Lemon Ginger Tea for Cold and Flu SeasonSince I was feeling so under the weather all week, I asked around looking for some natural remedies that would do the trick and here is what everyone had to say. This is what I decided to test try and it worked great for me.

  1. I made sure to keep taking my Vitamin D (where to buy), and a little extra.
  2. I doubled my daily Juice Plus (where to buy) intake.
  3. I took lots of elderberry syrup for my cough, about 1 tsp every hour until I was feeling better. That stuff tastes so delicious.
  4. I made sure to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water.
  5. I sipped on many cups of lemon ginger tea (recipe below).
  6. I made several batches of my vegetable soup and spiced it up to help get rid of this cold.

I love the tea, but I have not been able to persuade J.P to try it, even though he is coming down with a cold. He sure is missing out!

Since I am pretty much done my cold, I did not attempt the Master Tonic concoction that Sarah from Nature’s Nurture explains in detail. To be honest when I saw the recipe, I was afraid. I am pretty sure it will kill me.

Lemon Ginger Tea


  • 1 cup of hot water
  • Optional: ginger tea (where to buy)
  • 1-2 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar (where to buy)
  • Juice from one lemon or 1-2 drops of lemon essential oil (where to buy)
  • 1 Tbsp of raw organic honey (where to buy)
  • The following ground spices: cayenne pepper, cinnamon, turmeric, cloves and ginger (if you don't use ginger tea).


  1. Boil the water and steep your tea.
  2. Add the honey, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar. Stir.
  3. Add your spices of choice. Stir.
  4. Drink and be prepared for some "spicy and hot" tea.

Notes and Tips

Add any spice that you think will help.

If you do not have ginger tea, simply add fresh ginger or ground ginger.

Use plain water or another herbal tea.

    I love ginger tea! I have been hooked on it lately. It really helps me with digestion.

    I live off my master tonic. I take it even when I am not sick for the benefits. I highly, highly recommend you make some. :)

    I am 100% well but would gladly drink this. Thanks so much for the recipe. On a freezing cold day like today, this would be a very welcome addition!!

    Ginger isn’t something I regularly have on hand, but I use lemon and honey in my tea for any cold/flu rather than taking something over the counter or prescribed. Two years ago, my son and family came down with the Swine Flu, they went to the doctor and took prescribed medication. I too got it from them but decided to try my lemon and honey. I was better before they were.

    I have been on a tea kick lately. With the cold weather, it really warms me up in the afternoon. I normally just go with black tea. I’ve never heard of ginger tea. Sounds yummy! Thanks for the recipe. Pinning for later!

    I have my first cold of the season and year, so I will definitely make that tea. I love ginger anyway, it’s so fresh and delicious.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something
    to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post
    to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the
    issue resolved soon. Many thanks

    I love your cold remedies. I will make the Ginger Tea (maybe even without a cold) sometime soon. I, too, double up on my Juice Plus when I’m feeling under the weather. I don’t see many people who take JP. I was introduced to it about 13 years ago. Going to read your other remedies as well.

    Thank you

    Can I simply say what a relief to uncover somebody that actually understands what
    they are talking about on the web. You actually understand how to bring
    an issue to light and make it important. More people really
    need to check this out and understand this
    side of the story. I can’t believe you are not more popular because you most certainly possess the gift.
