  • 6 cups water
  • 1/2 cup ginger, chopped with skin on
  • 1 lemon, medium or large, sliced
  • 4 bags green tea, or 4 teaspoons
  • honey, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar, optional


  • Put water, chopped fresh ginger, and lemon in the water.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Add 4 bags or 4 teaspoons of your favourite green tea. (My fave is a raspberry hibiscus loose leaf, hence the colour.)
  • Take it off the heat and let steep about 10 minutes, minimum.
  • In your cup add honey to taste and an optional 1 tsp apple cider vinegar, fill up your cup with this delicious elixir!
  • As with all things I make, buy the best ingredients within your means, this is medicine after all.


I make it in this pot so I can just warm up another cup easily when needed.
