Immune boosting tea against cold/flu - cold-fighting tea made with immune-boosting ingredients like ginger, cinnamon, turmeric, lemon, and honey. This tea will help you get over your cold/flu in no time! Works every time!


  • 2 cups of water
  • 1-2 inches of ginger root, sliced
  • 2 sticks cinnamon stick
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Honey 


  1. In a small pot, add water, ginger, and cinnamon stick and bring it to a boil. 
  2. Once it comes to a boil, add turmeric powder.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. 
  4. Remove the pot from the heat and let it cool until it is warm enough to drink.
  5. Strain the mixture to a cup and add fresh lemon juice and honey. 


  • If you use cinnamon powder instead of a cinnamon stick, the tea can get a little slimy due to the fiber in cinnamon powder absorbing water. This slime is not harmful and perfectly safe to ingest. However, if you don't want any slime, use a cinnamon stick instead of cinnamon powder. 
  • Let your tea cool a little bit before you add your lemon juice so it won't destroy the vitamin C. 
  • I preferred to use raw honey because it has more beneficial nutrients and a higher level of antioxidants.
