Lemon is one of the citrus fruits that contain lots of Vitamin C. As a result, many health conditions are improved by oral intake of this fruit. Ginger is one of the most commonly used spices for food and drink preparation. It is considered a powerful spice because of its medicinal properties. Let me share with you my simple recipe for lemon ginger tea that you can make any time at home.

Tips and Techniques

Hello Pamela,

Thank you! I've been drinking this as a replacement of my regular water for about a year now. I can really feel the benefits of it.

Hello Miebakagh,

This is my usual drinking water. I seldom drink a plain one. It's really effective on my part.

Hi Lisa,

Yes, you can do it as a hot tea. All you need is to boil first the ginger then add the lemon after.
