Ginger Tea With Honey And Cinnamon – No More Coughing!

 

Nowadays I’m hearing from a lot of friends that they are sick: bronchitis, pneumonia, coughing and coughing etc.. I have a perfect homemade solution for lung-related problems like those: ginger tea.

Every year I have at least one bronchitis attack. I had that when I was a kid as often as now, then in between many years I had none. After a while, about 6 years ago, the attacks started again. And when the attack comes, it generally takes about 3 weeks (or more) and coughing your lungs out for such a long time makes your life hell.

 

When I had the attack 6 years for the first time after so many years, the doctor gave me tons of medicine. But none of them seemed to be working; I had the problem in the same intensity still after 2 weeks. The doctor tried another medicine, still the same.. But then, my friend’s mother told about this tea, I tried, I started drinking it 3 times a day and the result was incredible! Already within 2 days I was able to breathe better, on the third day there was a significant decrease in coughing. On the fifth day, I was totally fine!

So ever since, I recommend this tea to anyone with the same or similar problem. I hate ginger, I am not a big fan of honey, but I tolerate this tea no matter what. The addition of cinnamon gives a really good smell and taste and makes it easier to tolerate the tea. For this tea, you have to use fresh ginger, do NOT go for ground ginger!!

 

Ingredients:
(I am not giving exact portions because most of it is up to your taste)
1 “mug” or “cup” of water
4-5 slices of fresh ginger (or more if you like)
minimum 1 spoon of honey (any type you like, I put chestnut honey the last time and it was so good!)
About 1/4 coffee spoon ground cinnamon (you can put more according to your taste)

4. Add honey and cinnamon and stir well. Wait for about 2 minutes for the tea to cool down and drink it. It is good to drink this tea about 3 times a day at least. Hope you have a lovely and healthy week!
