This recipe was sent to me by a lovely friend of mine. It’s amazing! I’ve been drinking a well known brand of Lemon, Ginger & Manuka tea for years and it really is my favourite, but this fresh version knocks the socks off it sideways. Its’ really simple to make too, and because you make it in batches you won’t have to make it too often either.
Lemon oil is good for lymphatic drainage and can also help with slimming, so it’s a great addition to a tea. Ginger is a great anti-oxidant and supports healthy joints and digestion.
My friend peels his lemons, removes the seeds and pith and then purees the remaining lemon in a blender. He juices the ginger then add the honey and oils, stirs, then pours in to the ice cube trays and freezes.
I made mine slightly differently. I put the lemons and chunks of ginger straight into our slow juicer, peel and all. I warmed some raw wild honey then stirred it into the juice, added oils and then poured in to the ice cubes trays to freeze.
This should give you around 40 ice cubes, or cups of tea.
When you want a cup of tea, just pop an ice cube into a mug of boiled water and it’s ready in seconds. Enjoy!
