Are you searching for a way to give your immune system a boost? How about a drink that can relieve stress? Well, if you're holding a cup of lemon ginger tea in your hand, then you're on the right track!
Sweet, spicy and one of the best drinks to have during the winter, this tea is power-packed with some incredible health and body care benefits too!
And here's how to make your own Fresh Ginger-Lemon Tea (which is actually an infusion, not really "tea.")
Let's see how:
It Boosts Your Immune System: On top of the list of benefits of lemon ginger tea is its ability to strengthen your immunity. This is due to the presence of high levels of anti-oxidants in ginger. Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C which can heal wounds and preserve the strength of bones and teeth.
In the onset of cold and flu, the tea can act as an effective antibiotic. The bioflavonoids that lemons contain help to prevent cancer cells from growing and spreading.
The anti-oxidants in the lemons help in reducing inflammation and arthritis symptoms. The powerful antioxidants can reduce free radicals in the body. Ginger also increases blood circulation in the body that is vital for optimum health.
It Brings Instant Relief From Nausea and Indigestion: Vomiting and nausea usually occur as symptoms of a body disorder. Lemon ginger tea provides the best relief mechanism.
Moreover, if you have a motion sickness tendency, you can drink a cup of this tea prior to travel to prevent nausea.
It can also help cure the vomiting related to chemotherapy and pregnancy, which is a relief during that period. It eases the pain and uneasiness of an upset stomach.
The ginger and lemon in the tea lowers the chances of heartburn and indigestion. It causes the food to be better absorbed by the body and prevents belching and bloating after eating too much. It improves your appetite as well!
It Lowers The Effects Of Diabetes: New research has thrown light upon the fact that drinking this tea on a daily basis can reduce kidney damage that occurs due to the effects of diabetes.
The high levels of zinc found in ginger play a prime role in the production and secretion of insulin. It is the insulin that controls the blood sugar levels and keeps diabetes in check.
Other harmful effects of diabetes like blood pressure, heart problems and so on can be countered by the anti-oxidants present in the drink.
It Is Your One-Stop-Drink To Perfect Skin And Great Hair: As mentioned above, the tea is rich in anti-oxidants and vitamins which are beneficial for perfect skin, hair and health. The beverage helps in improving your digestion and guides you towards smooth and flawless skin.
The antibacterial and antiseptic properties protect your skin from infections. For strong and beautiful hair, the tea provides you a natural aid. Vitamin A and C are recommended in plenty for those with hair issues, as they combat the production of DHT in the scalp that in turn triggers hair growth.
A vitamin and anti-oxidant rich drink like lemon ginger tea will help you overcome hair problems in an absolute natural and simple way.
It Is The Apt Drink For Weight Loss: High blood sugar levels trigger cravings for carbohydrates and fatty foods. Ginger helps to normalize these sugar levels which otherwise can affect your ability to lose weight or eat healthy food. Ginger also improves fat absorption and prevents it from accumulating in the body.
Both ginger and lemon have anti-inflammatory properties that prevent inflammations and enhance the activity of the liver that helps in shedding those extra pounds.
The smell of lemons reduces stress causing an increase in metabolism and proper organ function that can help in weight loss.
How do we prepare lemon ginger tea?
Using green tea as a base, finely chop the ginger root and infuse it boiling water for twenty minutes. This helps in transferring the active ingredients into the liquid.
Adding two tablespoons of lemon juice and agave or stevia (or honey if it doesn't need to be vegan) into the mix helps in both sweetening the tea as well as countering the spicy effects of the ginger.
It can be served either hot or cold as the revitalizing effects are the same.
Lemon ginger tea can be very refreshing to drink with its medicine like qualities.
Moreover, a few recent studies suggest that it can help to stop blood clotting and lower cholesterol levels. This can prevent cardio-vascular diseases and strokes from taking place.
If you feel tense or worn out, the drink can also be an effective stress reliever. The strong aroma, spicy and refreshing taste and calming effects provide you relief and relaxation of your body and mind.
Try it out today and feel healthy and energetic!
And if you love this lemon ginger tea, be sure to check out these other tasty and healthy beverages:
- 3 cups water
- 3 green tea bags
- juice of 1 lemon
- 3 inches fresh ginger peeled and minced
- sweetener such as stevia or agave syrup if desired, to taste
- Bring water to a boil in a small pot or tea kettle. Add the ginger root and green tea bags. Remove from heat and allow to steep for twenty minutes.
- When tea is finished steeping, remove the tea bags and strain to remove the ginger pieces.
- Add two tablespoons of the lemon juice and sweetener (if using), to taste. Serve hot or cold.
Can powdered ginger used in the tea and what is the ratio of ginger and lemon in a cup of tea
Sue, I don't think powdered ginger would have the same benefits or flavor. But in a pinch, use 1/4 tsp per cup of tea and juice of 1/2 lemon, more or less to taste.
Eugene Byrne says
Just starting to take lemon and ginger drink. Got itchy rash. Doctor medication of little use ...hope this drink helps.
Any other suggestions. Thanks
mother mary says
I got Twinnings ginger lemon tea yesterday. Is that just as good? Does it have them same health benefits?
It won't hurt, but likely won't have the same benefits as the fresh ingredients.
Natalie Davis says
if I make Ginger honey crystals with fresh lemon wedges will I get the same benefits if I drink a cup daily
should i drink the ginger pcs also or is just the infusion where i get the benefits from?
Donna, it sure wouldn't hurt to eat the ginger, if you enjoy the flavor!
I have been using ginger lemon tea bags for nausea and my stomach. How effective is the tea bag?
Steven Smith says

Is it safe to drink in early pregnancy?
Jemima, I can't see why it wouldn't be safe, in fact, it seems like just the thing for nausea, but do check with your practitioner first.

Conrad Jones says
Twinnings lemon and ginger is good for you. But I can't wait to try this.
White Wolf says
Is there any chance you can give some more info about the recepie, ie. how much ginger root to use for 1 cup and do you infuse ginger with green tea and water or just water?
That's a really good question, and I'll try to come up with a recipe that can accompany this contributed post!
I simply just use about 1cm of af small gingerroot, which i cut into small pieces, then, i cut 3 slices of lemon, and make them into quarters. I take the little cubes og ginger and the quarters og lemon slices and put them in a cup and pour hot water. then let it set for about 10min, og enjoy.. i LOVE this - it tastes so good, and i don't put any sweeteners or anything in it - you can do, if you feel like it.
I've been drinking ginger powder and lemon everyday more than once a day . About 2 tap of powder in 10 Oz of water and 2 caps of lemon. Skins never been better and my acid reflux has greatly improved
Ben Pierce says
Is there a benefit to using decaffeinated tea instead of regular tea?
will this help me lose weight that i have gained due to taking levothroxine med as i have undergone total thyroid removal and have gained a lot.
Conrad Jones says
I'm back. I've been drinking this everyday minus the green tea. Never felt better.
Irene McFarlane says
I love Twining lemon and ginger tea but think will try using fresh ginger it must be more beneficial. My Dr told me to grate ginger over cooked vegetable for health benefits and add some zing
Katlego Mmapadi says
I only started using using this recipe today because I have flu. I FEEL SO ALIVE (Am in Botswana - Africa). Thanks a mill hey!
kellyn westra says
I shred frozen ginger (i store it in the freezer and makes it easier to shred). Add half a lemon to a inch or more chunk of shredded ginger. I also add 3 cinammon sticks and 2 cloves for added health and flavor benefits. If I find tumeric root I shred and add that. Does make everything yellow, but found it oddly makes the tea sweeter. Boil 20 min with 4 cups or so water. Strain. Add honey if desired and drink! Pretty much cures alot of things and makes you feel relaxed.
jane mater says

Manila Rone-Wells says
I absolutely love ginger and lemon tea. I've been drinking it for about two months. It helps me rid gas build ups, also it is a pleasant drink after a long day.
I drink honey Limon tea now also Limon and ginger in freg all the time also put cinnamon in it
Oladele oyedeji says
Awesome home made therapy.
I've been drinking this honey lemon ginger tea for more than a month now and drinking it also at work, i feel so energetic everytime i drink this tea and when i feeling hungry and tired i just drinking it and then i feel energetic again. In two weeks i lose 3kg. It's really amazing!! I drink it every morning, lunch and before i go to bed.
I personally do not like the taste of this ginger tea with honey and lemon. I'm on my second pregnancy and i feel awful. I've been throwing up everything and i am dehydrated. I am drinking ginger boiled in warm water and i sorta feel better. however the tea with honey and lemon made me feel queezy and i might have to go throw up again. So i prefer just ginger and water. (:
I am looking at reducing my pot belly, is it healthy that i start my morning before eating with a cup of ginger then stay up to lunch with eating ??? any side efforts to this ??
My body weight is perfect as per height:body mass ratio. If I take this tea regularly, will it reduce my body weight as it is not required? Is straining of ginger necessary after boiling? Will it be necessary/beneficial to steep the tea for 5-10 minutes after adding lemon and honey and strain the ginger and drink? Lastly, quantity of ginger to be used.
For me am not taking lemon with ginger mine is ginger with green tea hv been using it since. 2weeks ago and is really working .
I would recommend using fresh ginger and lemon as often as possible. If this is not easy due to seasonal changes, then opt for something organic or without artificial flavourings, preservatives or colours. These are just placing foreign chemicals in your body with no benefit - simply places an extra load on the liver and kidneys. It also needs to be considered that everything you eat or drink has the potential to enter every cell - it is why we eat in the first place. Nerada is a good brand for herbal tea as it is also fairtrade. This is available in Australia. Other brands are also available in the supermarket or Health food Store. The best thing to do is check the ingredients because even some organic products can place some preservatives and emulsifiers. Another substitute for green tea is peppermint tea. This is because whilst green tea has many anti-oxidants, it does contain caffeine which is a diuretic (increases urination) and can lower iron absorption. This means to simply control the amount of green tea rather than drink 5 cups a day. Two is plenty and the rest can be non-caffeinated tea. Peppermint tea also improves digestion. So do your research and make smart decisions - that way no one can sell you fake things 🙂
Can I drink the tea cold or it has to be hot/warm to get the best results?
I began drinking ginger tea (no green tea or lemon or sweetener of any kind) at least once a day about a month ago. I have had gastrointestinal issues for a decade or more and lately the pain has been intense. I try for at least one cup a day, but sometimes take more. I love the fresh taste hot or cold. Seems like it is up to me to decide how strong to make it. I peel and slice the rhizomes thin and put them in a stainless tea ball. Pour boiling water over it and let it steep and steep and steep. Take the warm cup out and store the rest in a glass jar. I do not refrigerate it because cold drinks seem to aggravate my issues. But a quart only lasts me a day or two and it's time to make more.
That's a very good question! Unfortunately I can't answer it with any authority.
As for me i jst add satchet ginger tea to a hot cup of green tea and it tastes great. The satchet ginger tea contains honey. Maybe i'll try squezzing in a little lemon,i hope it will be nicer.
As long as I can remember my mum and dad always used garlic and ginger in stews. Never go without ginger in stews and stirfrys and I love eating it raw or I leave big chunks in my cooking so I can munch out on it. When my children were growing up, I had to cut the ginger thin because they didnt like the taste. Today theyve grown up to cook it in their stews and stirfrys. Love ginger!!
Zimbabwean. I use both powdered ginger or whole ginger sliced or crushed with lemon & honey. Fantastic drink hot. Energizing, revitalizing, good for digestion, colds, stomach trouble, headache etc. Alternate with herbal tea. Mwxah!
We can do ginger paste and add same?
That should probably work.
How many times can you drink lemon ginger water? Does it also work with green tea? Will it work drinking it cold?
Can we drink ginger and lemon honey tea on the night time before sleep.
I think 3 times a day should be good, Selena. And drinking it cold should be fine, too.
Since it's not actually "tea" with caffeine, that should be fine as long as you brush your teeth afterwards!
I absolutly adore this drink! It is the perfect combination of tangy and bitter, spicy and sweet. It is both refreshing and comforting. However I am concerned about any possible effects of drinking too much?!! Should I be worried about my consumption of this delicious infused drink?
Funmilayo Ayebogun says
l need more information about ginger,garlic and lemon
Marly, that's a good question! I think moderation is good for everything. I'd be concerned about what too much lemon would do to your tooth enamel.
Drinking through a straw could help the tooth enamel concerns, though limiting the flavour sensations which are an obvious plus to this amazing medicinal health drink.
Ginger and lemon tea i tried it. its my grandma recipe when im sick usually when i have sore throat also if im constipated. since then i been exploring more about tea among them. my favorite is the Matcha green tea.
Gift Mercy says
Is this ginger lemon tea good for an expecting mother?
I I loved this. I am drinking it right now. I had a really bad cold starting drinking this and like 2 days later I started feeling really great. Now I am making a daily thing to drink. I have diabetes high blood pressure and on dialysis who knows this could really have me feeling good all the time.. I highly recommend trying !
I drink my own brew go Ginger and Lemon morning and evening, I feel it has helped me a lot , I recommended to everybody.
I have recently had blocked saliva glands and got told to have lemon juice in water to get the saliva flowing. Since it's so hot here at the moment, I started making green tea and letting it sit until it's cold. Then adding lemon juice, ginger and ice to fresh fruit (Strawberries, banana etc) to make smoothies. I have been having lemon juice for 5 months and was initially worried about my teeth, but lemon juice stimulates saliva and saliva production assists in keeping teeth and gums healthy. I make sure I brush twice a day and use toothpaste with enamal protection. Have been visiting dentist and my teeth are actually showing signs of improvement.
Loida caldwell says
Ginger lemon tea is very very good. right now my hair looks so shiny. I love it, makes me younger and beautiful don't forget to try it .
I am sick cold /flu today's smoothie is a finger of ginger 1/2 banana 1/2 lemon 1/2 cup mango 1/2 cup water
Hope this help kick my illness
It sure can't hurt! Feel better soon.
This is a great help for me. Thanks very much
is it ok if the base is black tea? Will it remove the benefits or weaken them?
Is it possible instead of green tea, I use lipton. Am asking because that I have for the moment.
This very good is helping me
Dan Knight says

Can you describe the recipe steps? Once water is boiled, do you remove it from stove and add ginger to let it steep for 20mins?
Sam, there is a link to the recipe steps in the first paragraph of this post: http://www.vegkitchen.com/recipes/how-to-make-fresh-ginger-lemon-tea/ Enjoy!!

Alison Fennell says

Alecia Davidson says
Tonight is my first night trying this. I bought lemon ginger tea with probiotic by Bigelow. I'm really looking forward to seeing and posting positive results.
How many times per day we can have lemon tea? Is there any timings to follow? I mean early morning or evening
I get a more intense flavour if I grate the ginger than cut the ginger into slices, little bit of honey and wow a great drink.
I've been drinking this teas every morning before anything else for 2 weeks now because I have a bloated stomach all the time,but this drink has
not helped my bloated stomach at all. How long before I can see results.
Just wondered if it is normal for the drink to cause visible clearing of the skin, such as pores to open and release fluid as impurities? I find my skin looks rough for a few days than looks wonder after I have stopped regular consumption.
ginger is spice, but it has health benefits. using ginger drinks to detox is very good for your health.
I just use the Bigelow Lemon Ginger tea and add fresh turmeric to it. The Bigelow tea has no calories, no fat and no sodium and its list of ingredients include lemongrass, lemon peel, cinnamon, natural ginger, lemon verbena, rosehips, and licorice root.
Regina Tierno says
I have been drinking ginger lemon tea for 2 weeks now. I have noticed I no longer feel bloated; and my knees which were aching, feel so much better.
I slice the ginger in boiling water. Let it steep for about 5 minutes. Squeeze 1/2 lemon and leave it in the water. I then pour into a pitcher, add water and refrigerate.
I love it and have been making it on a daily basis.
Cindy Quinn says
Could u please recommend an organic lemon and ginger teabag supplier. Often away from home and would love to be able to have them with me. Many thanks.
I have been taking ginger tea one mug in the morning and evening for a month now. It helped me sweat a lot during my daily exercise. Shrunk 2 inches of my waist and lost 18 lbs! Thank God for this natural ingredients that has helped me with my diet , amazing! I dont add sweeteners, and loved the taste. Im actually having a cup now 🙂
I've never made tea from scratch, but it sounds like a lovely activity for frigid Boston winters.
I'm currently drinking Bigelow Lemon Ginger w/ Probiotics. 2 tbs of honey, lemon wedge so delicious @ least 5x a wk. I do notice the instance energy boost, and "Aunt Flow" is in town so it does ease the cramping pain. I'm glad to read from other comments that there are possible beauty benefits to look forward too.
I really like ginger tea and was wondering if it is safe to drink daily for an extended time or should there be a break once in awhile? Thanks
Charlotte, since ginger is really food (or a root, or spice, however it's defined) and not technically a tea, there shouldn't be any risk in consuming it daily. Enjoy!
I have one question... If I drink the Twinings of London Lemon and Ginger tea, do I still get the benefits that were stated above? Thank you.
Well, we hear about many things that are beneficial to the body, actually we are lost about what should we drink or eat to stay healthy and fight diseases. i am having ginger lemon tea on a daily basis. Are those tea bags (London tea) as efficient as natural mix?
Hi John, the ginger lemon tea we're covering here is technically an infusion, and not the same as a tea made with actual tea leaves or herbs. So I'd say the benefits are from the actual ingredients, ginger and lemon, prepared fresh.
Hi...I am lactating mother. . Can I drink ginger lemon tea daily. . Will this effect my baby?
LAURA GERBRANDT says
how much of this tea do we drink a day for weight loss?
Hi , I got gastric reflex can drink?
louie gee says

can i drink this anytime in a day or not
i want to loose my weight i hope it will help me.
Monika, you can drink this any time of day. If you drink a lot of it, rinse your mouth out afterwards, as lemon juice an impact the enamel on your teeth.
USMAN SHA says
I am trying the Ginger & Lemon with Black tea, will it help to reduce my cholesterol level and give me immune system.
Hey,I have read in the other internet threads that honey should not be added when the drink is hot.I would love to have served the tea when its hot.Please do advise.
Hi Maithri — this is a good question, but I'm not confident I can answer it confidently. The only thing that comes to mind is that some of the beneficial enzymes of raw honey would be destroyed if the water is too hot?
Hilda zMayne says
Yes, I agree with the website about the ginger root tea with lemon.
I do drink it often. At least twice a day
I can see result in the mid area of my body, in which its hard to lose.
It's easy for me because I LOVE AMY TYPE OF TEAS.
Elizabeth D. Shover says
I am drinking lemon water everyday but I just want to ask if is there another ingredient other than ginger that might be used for smoother sensation and taste? I don’t like the smell of ginger.
Tried it once loved it, was recommended by a friend went out and bought lots. Then read your article for more research.All in all great will be drinking this every day now. Thank you
Gloria D says
I started the tea last week. I am loving it.
I like to use a mint tea bag w my mixture to help smooth over the ginger zest and make it into a cooling sensation. Mint tea also keeps it caffeine free for late night sipping. It's great cold too for a refreshing tea during hot days.
Lemon ginger tea helps to boost the immune system.pls use those who affect sinus,wheezing.
I just tried it for the first time today. I froze my ginger and then when I wanted a cup I just zested enough for my tea skin and all. I hear the skin is eve better for you. Then I zest one whole lemon and the juice it. I put the lemon zest and ginger in a cup of water and boil. I let steep for about 20 minutes. Then I add the juice and just a bit of honey. I drank it and within about 20 minutes or less I felt as though I had just had a glass of wine. It relaxes me so much. I thought for a minute I was high. Great stuff.
Avril Archibald says
I love ginger & lemon
Very refreshing drink.
someone told me they had lemon and ginger tea with manuka honey, it had a bad effect on him- he had an upset tummy which caused a bad toilet experience(trying not to give to much information!!!)
I do take ginger and lemon tea for a couple of months now it's results are amazing.I relieves coughing especially
Good for relieving cough.
what is the ratio of lemon/ginger/water?
Also be careful. Lemon (and possibly ginger? i don't know) can have a detoxing effect so if you aren't used to drinking it and you drink a lot all of a sudden you can end up spending some time on the toilet....so just work up to it.
Pls friends ,I have questions on "tea" mentioned does it meant milk and tea with ginger and lemon
I drink this lemon and ginger every morning and I add cinnamon sticks and boil it for a few minutes.. This has helped me to stay away from sugar in my cup of tea or coffee every morning.. I don't drink any tea anymore but just this drink..
jannathul firthows says
hot water, + tea powder + lemon extract is called the lemon tea. no milk is to be added.
Amit Aryan says
can anybody tell, how to use ginger and lemon for improve digestive system....??
Ginger and lemon black tea is ok hot when you buy 'in packet you add hot water just drink and enjoy.
Hi I've been using this occasionally but after reading more about this tea, I took a few sips with my 2 yr old boy who has not been passing.... For the past two days. But just after that he was relieved. He even managed to eat enough soft porridge.
Please don't use bottled lemon juice! Use fresh organic lemons! Trust me on this one.
Ann durante says
I make my ginger-lemon by adding just water. Does this have the same effect?
In one day how many times drink this really tell me thanx
I drink it twice a day.
I usually drink Lemon ginger tea in the evenings after dinner. Is that ok? Is it effective in loosing weight if I continue drink in the evenings?
I have been using/drinking lemon & ginger tea every morning for about 18months. While all those round me were going down with cold & flue I was clear.... Until I stopped for about 5 days,(pressure of work), then I got a heavy cold. Obviously I can't be sure that my not having my morning brew was the cause, but I believe it was.
A question that has been asked, but not answered, is how much ginger. I have often read HOW to make it, but never the quantities.
So let me throw in my 1 cents worth! My lemons weigh about 130g giving approx 60 - 65g juice.
Ginger, depends what size piece I can break off, but about 30g. I remove the skin & grate.
Lemon & ginger in a cup with hot water & a tea bag. Leave for about 15 min, strain, add 2 tea spoons honey & drink hot.
I would be interested to hear what others have to say. Thank you
Ron, we can't really comment on whether drinking ginger-lemon tea is effective for losing weight, but it certainly can't hurt to drink it in the evening.
Sherill Pierce says
I like to boil the ginger and let steep. Let it cool down a little before adding honey. I juice 2 lemons (cause I keep the rest of the juice refrigerated for other uses) and add the lemon juice to my taste. I fill a 64 oz container and keep it refrigerated. I can drink it cold or warm.
I love this drink it soothes my mind and rejuvenating my immune system
Dawa Dolkar says
When is the best time to drink this tea? (As in morning, afternoon or night) and how often should I drink this?
This infusion would be good to drink at any time!
I have been drinking this for about a month now, the results are great. my tummy has reduced, i feel lighter. my digestion is supper. i will recommend any one for this. i do Cinnamon,Hot water, Ginger and lemons
How effective is the bagged lemon and ginger tea?
Selva cejic says
Hi, I been drinking this tea every day for two mints. It's just for me the greatest tea! Before I was carving for the sweet stuff a lot but, NOT NOW! I have lost more than couple pounds too! 🙂 Also, to answer to USMAN SHA, I have little problems with cholesterol, what I did is every morning for 12 weeks drinking ORGANIC APPLE CIDER 2 teaspoons add water approx. 3 3/4 glass some ice cubes & drink it before you brush your theth on empty stomach. That also bust your metabolisam & helping to loose weight specially if you each wat you eat. It's just great & refreshing. After you done with 12 weeks drinking APPLE CUDER VINEGAR go & have lab test to check on your cholesterol. I found this in my email & I heard also long time ago from older people in country where I was born that Apple cider vinegar is really healthy for lots of things. I also drink this famous LEMOM GINGER TEAZthat I prepare myself from the organic ginger root, organic lemon & adding some honey its just fantastic! You can try this or not it's up to you!.

Hi Joe, these are good questions but we're not qualified to give medical advice. Please consult your doctor or a Registered Dietician.
A R Power says
I was wondering: usually I love ginger/lemon fr teabag, not yet made from scratch. But recently, I had a bit rushed meal with couscous , fried mackerel& broccoli.later a couple of hrs after at work w clients, I had the tea and experienced a very sudden nausea cum violent asthma cough- + evacuation and stomach cramps. I guess, actually the fish may not have been any more 100% . By incidently choosing this tea, I got rid of it, even though it hadn't tasted bad.and I was not sick before drinking the tea. I still love the tea and will make it w the real stuff and better honey.. I felt totally fine after...
Janet Geter says
Not sure if ginger and lemon tea I just purchased out of the store had a direct effect on my knee arthritis, but I am noticing less pain, any comments? Also it appears to be some what of a laxative for me, IJS. Thanks in advance for the tips! Happy holidays!
Janet Geter says
Can this tea act as a laxative as well?
Angela Flercher says
Love this drink. I grate loads of ginger skin and all., then bring to gently simmer for 10 mins. And alow to cool for about 2 hours to infuse. Run through a sive into airtight bottle so it's ready in the fridge anytime I need it. Add 1/2 lemon juiced , one teaspoon of raw honey. Water hot but not boiling as it reduces the benefits of the honey. I drink this fabulous drink 3 sometimes 4 times daily.
JUST TRIED IT FOR THE FLU AND IM SEEING IMPROVEMENTS...IN ORDER TO GET THE TRUE/STRONG EFFECTS OF THE TEA..SOAK THE BLENDED OR FINELY CHOPPED OR GRATED GINGER AND ADD IT TO A GLASS BOTTLE OF WATER OVERNIGHT OR SOME DAYS IN THE FRIDGE OR ON THE TABLE ETC..WHEN READY FOR USE OR IF NECESSARY SEPERATE THE GINGER PIECES FROM THE LIQUID BY STRAINING IT..ADD JUICE OF LEMON AND SWEETNER EG SUGAR /STEVIA ETC OR BOIL THE GINGER LIQUID,POUR INTO CUP THEN ADD LEMON&SWEETNER

It helped me to lose fat of stomach.And i fell in love with lemon ginger tea. Nice share.
I have been drinking hot lemon water (1/2 lemon squeezed into mug, add boiled water) for a long time and recently started adding ginger root (1" inch square sliced thinly) and initially there was a digestive concern but I have found cold season much better since. I also added cucumber once but that had a laxative effect so removed that.
My question: recently, I have been dumping the remaining pulp and ginger slices into a 24 oz container, adding the squeezed shell and filling with cold water and sipping through the day, topping up as I go. Would that have any continuing effect or is it just flavouring the water at this stage?
Is drinking the ginger and lemon tea in a teabag as beneficial to your health as making it?
Does anyone add honey to the lemon and ginger hot tea for a little sweetness?
Sandra, perhaps no one has mentioned this since this is a vegan site and honey isn't considered vegan, but if you wish to do so that's fine; just be aware that the honey adds calories and is hard on the teeth!
Dolores, it's hard to know these things for sure, but intuitively, it seems like fresh ingredients would be better.
I freeze lemon and partially dried ginger in Ice cube trays with some mint. I use a 32oz water bottle and mix half water half cranberry juice and 2~3 ice cubes. And drink two throughout the day during work. I love it. So tasty!
mary dianne gurney says
hi can anybody share?i usually boiled the sliced ginger for about 6 cups and boil it again every morning to drink hot..is it still effective to drink?or it would loose the benefit u can get from ginger?
Hi, it is still effective. But I suggest to brew freshly everyday, as the oxidation of the ginger infusion would turn its benefits down.
Hi...I was wondering! What do you mean by "using green tea as a base" ??
Is that just using a green tea teabag?
I LIVE BY THIS and can attest to the benefits. To be honest I didn't realize I was "blessed" with great skin and an uneventful digestive tract until I hit my late 30's and friends with crappy habits have issues with everything (like everyday)!
I'm sick maybe once a year IF that! The only side effect is I pee...and pee...and pee, but I guess that's good. If I go without my tea (I boil lemon & ginger & steep w/Pu-Erh tea) I feel like crap, I think I'm addicted to the clean feeling and loads of caffeine.
Michael C says
I make sure to grate my ginger, so it doesn't need to steep as long and use a fresh lemon combined with raw, organic unfiltered honey. It wakes me up just as much as coffee used to, without the jitters, and feels and tastes so clean and fresh. Sometimes I will add a pinch of cayenne to it for an extra boost.

Sean Wilson says

Ntswaki Moruledi says
Hi. My sister and I had the ginger lemon tea (Rooibos tea) last night but we noticed that it caused us heartache. Can someone please explain if this was a good thing or a bad thing. Why did we both have sign of heart attack??? Thank you.
Can i drink it cold
Marta, you can drink it at any temperature that appeals to you.
How many glasses of water can be consumed. Do I need to take it on empty stomach (morning hrs). After how much time can I drink or have breakfast.
Ginger, lemon and honey is fantastic, very refreshing, good for weight control if one avoids all the sugar laden drinks. It also heals sore throat,cough and cold. In my opinion beats lemsip hands down!
Does drinking the lemon and ginger twinning tea bags ok is it just as good
Pilar lapuz says

hi.. i boil ginger few slices with one lemon juice some lemon grass for fragrance and green tea.. but when i add lemon to this boiling water containing ginger and lemon grass a sort of lather forms on surface. what does it indicates? is it harmful? should b worried? plus i do this 3 times a day in an electric kettle.
Nava i just brought this ginger and lemon. I would like to know, can i drink mint tea with fresh ginger and lemon, without honey? I don't use any kind of sweetener or honey in my tea usually.
Fresh grated ginger, water and pure honey is excellent.I do not recommend using a base tea!.also agree that tumeric powder and mint will increase benefits!
Just made myself a ginger lemon honey tea with cinamon and its delicious! I use my DT essential oils to make it and I think it tastes better.
Just tried this today, I also added cinnamon for the extra benefits and also flavour. I'm not a fan of the taste overall but I can tell the drinks going to be good for me so I'm going to drink it for a while.
I lost my 6 KG in a month by fresh lemon honey and warm water morning and before bed from now on I will have ginger with it too

Does the Bigelow Lemon Ginger Tea do the same thing or do I need to use fresh herbs and lemon?
Dianna, fresh is definitely better.
Lemon Ginger Tea is really helpful for my body and health. I got benefit from it after insisting on drinking for half of one year.
Love my lemon and ginger tea... I had issues with bloating and breaking down some meals but since I incorporated this among many more herbal teas, I rarely have any stomach problems and m skin looks great as well...:. I truly think it's delicious too....

What is the best time to drink ginger lemon tea?
How many times in a day we can drink this tea ?
Ive been drinking lemon,ginger and honey with or without oregano for the past months. It has agreat effect on my belly fat. My indigestions or constipation is gone. The best result for me is on an empty stomach esp in the mornings. It helps fight my colds as well and even my 11 year old son tried it too for his cough. Great home remedy and no preservatives ..i use fresh ones
People - Here's what you need to do, Get *Organic* ginger, not the regular one, grate about half an inch of peeled ginger root into boiling water (2 cups of water) and boil for a few minutes, do not strain the ginger shreds leave them on and drink with lemon and honey first thing in the morning and along with each meal. There is no substitute for this in terms of benefits this concoction provides.
