It's winter season, and if you are like me, you don't let a little cold get in the way of your killer fashion sense. Unfortunately, I sometimes skip out on a sweater way too often and end up with a cold. Fortunately, I came across the best remedy to stop my cold in its tracks. So next time you’re bothered by a cold, do yourself a favor and try this tea.
I first stumbled upon the mixture while using stumble upon, then again on Pinterest, and again on Free People's blog. So I figured someone upstairs must be speaking to me, and I am so glad I listened because nothing has ever soothed my scratchy throat, or cleared my stuffed up nose quite like this.
This is the ingredient list that I have found is most soothing:
4 cups water
2.5 inch knob of ginger, peeled & cut into ½ inch pieces
2 cinnamon sticks
1 heaping tsp dried rose hip
local honey to taste
- Throw all ingredients but the honey into a sauce pan or crock pot, and simmer until brewed.
- Ladle tea into cups using a tea strainer to keep out pieces of ginger, rose hip, cloves, or cinnamon.
- Stir in as much honey as you like & drink.
- Feel better!
