This is my all time favorite tea to drink in the winter!

Hot Ginger Tea with Healing Spices to Strengthen Your Immune System

  • 20 Cardamom Pods (green) – Good for digestions and to detoxify the body through its diuretic properties,
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks – Controls blood sugar levels and is an anti-oxidant – protecting the body against damage from free radicals.
  • 6 inches of Ginger Root (washed and thinly sliced) – Promotes circulation and lowers high blood pressure.
  • 2 inches of Turmeric (washed and thinly sliced) - Anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant.
  • 10 Whole Cloves – Warming and soothing for the digestive system (what you need in the winter months) and anti-flatulence properties.
  • 10 Whole Peppercorns – Stimulates digestion and has anti-bacterial properties, keeping the digestive system healthy.
  • 12 cups water

Add all spices to boiling water and let boil for ten minutes. Let stand for 20 minutes. Strain out spices.

I like a little bit of stevia or raw local honey (strengthens the immune system if you have allergies) and a squeeze  of fresh lemon or orange into the tea helps digestion.

Store the remainder in the refrigerator.

The healing properties of spices are endless, here's more information on how ginger benefits your body and lifestyle. Learn more about the healing aspects of spices and Ayurveda at one of our Detox and Yoga Retreats.

After you've brewed your tea, take a moment to relax and enjoy your healing ginger tea. Find a place to sit quietly - put on your favorite PJs or sweats, wrap yourself in a warm blanket and get comfortable in whatever place you find.

Take a moment to enjoy the present moment:

  • Observing the beautiful winter landscape out your window.
  • Start that book you’ve been wanting to read.
  • Journal
  • Meditate

Choose whatever speaks to your heart and what nourishes you at this time of year.
