Hot Ginger Echinacea Lemon Tea

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Sharon123

A cozy drink with a little spice-ginger, a little kick-lemon, and a little soothing-honey! This drink is good cold too! This drink is excellent as an expectorant tea and/or a sore throat soother. Even if you aren't under the weather, this warming beverage will make you feel restored and comfy! Adapted from Growing 101 Herbs That Heal by Tammi Hartung.

I just made this with dried echinacea petals from my garden, and sucanat. My youngest daughter is feeling under the weather, so she was most appreciative. Thanks for the help Sharon!
