Colds, coughs, and sniffles don’t stand a chance with this tea in your life. Hot Green tea is loaded with fresh ginger, cinnamon, lemon, and raw honey – a million times better than any store-bought syrups 😉
With old man Winter creeping up on us quite quickly, today I’m happy to be sharing with you my secret weapon to staying bright and chipper ALL year long. Healing Ginger Tea! It’s just as wonderful as it sounds. And simple to boot! I’ve been fighting a nasty flu cold this week and I have been drinking this tea non-stop! I’ve already had two giant mugs this morning —-> It’s comfortville in a cup 😉
Let’s dive a little deeper into what makes this tea so delightful!
The base of this healing drink is green tea – so many wonderful antioxidants! I use Bigelow Decaffeinated Green Tea, but you can definitely use caffeinated green tea if you want a little kick. I was so happy when Bigelow offered me this chance to talk about their tea with you because it is my go-to tea of choice!
The green tea is steeped with fresh cinnamon sticks (easily found in the spice isle). Once the tea has steeped, it gets poured over raw honey, fresh grated ginger, and lemon juice. Then all you do is stir and sip away! This tea is comforting day or night, and a must if you’re stuffed up or battling a sore throat. I swear by it as my “ultimate sore throat fighter”. Even C loves this tea! And he is not even a huge tea fan. It’s just that good.
After one sip you’ll see why I swear by this healing ginger tea! Go stock up on green tea, lemons, and ginger, now! You can thank me later! xoxo
P.S. I have another cozy comforting recipe for you coming up VERY soon… teaser 😉
Healing Ginger Tea
- 2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger
- 3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon raw honey
- 2 cups water
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 2 green tea bags
- Divide the ginger, lemon juice, and honey evenly among two tea cups.
- Place the water and cinnamon stick in a kettle; bring to a rolling boil, then remove from heat. Add tea bags to the hot water and steep for 4 minutes.
- Divide the water among the two tea cups, stir well, and serve.
Yes I tried it really delicious
This is wonderful! For easier prep, I prepared the tea as instructed, but placed all the other ingredients in a blender (Bullet) then added the tea after it had seeped. I just washed the ginger and didn’t peel it. I thought it might taste like medicine or something awful, but it is addictive. Love it.
If I don’t have fresh ginger, can I use ground ginger? And if so, how much?
I agree with you ginger tea is my favorite drink. Ginger always have in the house.

Hi Ashley, your tea sounds amazing but i have a couple of silly questions for you 🙂 i am a breastfeeding mother is it safe for me to use all these products? And secondly, can i use ground cinnamon instead of cinnamon sticks, and if so how many teaspoons would i need? Thanks heaps 🙂
Hi Natalie. I believe these products should all be safe for feeding, but I’m not 100% sure. You may want to check on the raw honey as that may not be safe for the baby. You can definitely use a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon instead, and add more to taste 🙂

I am a by the recipe person…could you post how many tea bags, how much honey, how many cinnamon sticks, and how much ginger you use? Would really appreciate it…we are battling the colds this week!
Hi Ashley. The recipe can be found at the very bottom of the post 🙂 I hope you feel better!!!
This looks so delicious that I can imagine I would like it whether I had a cold or not! #client
Yay tea! I could definitely use a cup or two of this right about now. 🙂
Mu husband believes that ginger tea is good for almost everything 🙂 whenever he has cold or bad stomach I make ginger tea. But I wasn’t adding cinnamon, that sounds good.
Your husband is a smart cookie 😉 I always make ginger tea for stomach aches. It’s a miracle worker!
Must make this recipe. The list of ingredients sound very delicious!
