Thursday Thursday Thursday… It’s that day that’s too close to Friday that makes you yearn for the weekend. But wait just a tick! That rainy weather that the Pacific Northwest is all too familiar with is here and the Emerald Crew is prepping for what comes with the winter rain… The Flu.
Emerald’s Tasty Treat for the week: Flu Fighting Tea
1 bag good quality organic Echinacea tea (optional) 3 or 4 thin slices of fresh organic ginger root 3 tablespoons organic lemon juice, fresh squeezed 2 tablespoons raw organic honey 1/2 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon organic ground clove Cayenne pepper to taste
1. In a large cup of hot filtered water, steep the tea bag and the sliced ginger (you may omit the tea bag if you’d like).
2. Add the lemon juice, honey and spices and stir well. The tea will be cloudy.
3. If you’d like, you may strain the tea through cheesecloth to remove the ground spices and ginger. At our house, we just drink it as is.
Enjoy, and feel better soon!
