Great if you feel a cold or the flu coming on. You can serve Hot or Chill and pour into a tall glass This spicy tea is a great way to begin or end any meal or to enjoy between meals. Given ginger's renowned antinausea and anti-inflammatory properties, the tea is especially comforting when you're traveling by boat,car or airplane. I've also made it without adding the tea.

Delicious... The ginger and lemongrass give this a kick and it is refreshing at the same time. I used camomile tea as the basic tea. This will also be very good to drink when you have a cold, for its medicinal effect.It is easy to adjust to your own taste!
- 1 quart water
- 1⁄4 cup freshly grated gingerroot (no need to peel)
- 1 stalk lemongrass, cut lengthwise
- 2 bags herbal tea (or equivalent)
- lemon, to taste (I squeeze a whole lemon in)
