Lemon Ginger Honey Tea (Immune support and cold assist)

We've already experienced our first colds of the season at the Harlow Homestead. I've made several rounds of this tea. I enjoy it, but it takes lots of encouragement to get the rest of the family to drink it. Adjust ingredients to desired strength/taste. You only need three ingredients. Fresh Ginger Root, Honey and Fresh Lemon.

Grate about 1 inch of the ginger root. (I keep one in the freezer.) A micro-planer works well for grating this.
Juice one lemon (I also use the micro-planer and add a little lemon zest.)
Honey to taste.

Boil water. Meanwhile, put the grated ginger, juice of lemon and honey into a thermos. Add boiling water and steep for about 20 minutes. Pour through strainer into cup. Enjoy (or according to my husband, tolerate.) The original recipe came from this link.
