When you’re feeling a cold, flu, or other illness coming on, steep yourself a cup of this ginger tea. In addition to ginger’s many health benefits, we include rosehip and chamomile.  Together the tisane soothes and hydrates; adding a touch of honey or agave syrup can help to ease sore throats and suppress coughs. Don’t be shy about how much ginger you add,  our recommendation will be pretty spicy, but you can always make it as spicy and potent as you prefer.
