An anti-inflammatory tea that is as delicious as it is pretty! 


  • 3 cups (700ml) boiling water
  • one 1-inch (2-3 cm) piece of ginger root, peeled and grated
  • 2 TBSPs dried chamomile flowers (use 3 teabags if you can’t find flowers)
  • juice from 1/2 small lemon
  • 1 TBSP honey, more to taste


  1. Pour boiling water in a heat-proof jar (or fill up a kettle that has a sieve). Add ginger and chamomile. Steep for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Stir in lemon juice and honey. Strain the tea, pour into a mug and enjoy. Add more honey if needed. Keep leftover tea in the refrigerator for up to 1-2 days. Warm up on the stove before drinking again or enjoy cold. 


If you’re new to ginger, you can easily use less the first few times and build your tolerance to it.
If you enjoy lighter teas, use more water than the recipe calls for. For more zing add more ginger. 

You can use tea bags in place of chamomile flowers and fresh ginger.
