Lemony Tea with Chamomile and Ginger


To quote the Tick, "Sometimes, when I'm feeling like a raving ding-dong, I find a nice bit of chamomile tea."

     This piping hot cup of goodness not only offers chamomile, but is also fortified with ginger and lemon for lots of vitamin C and soothing tummy relief. The holidays can be brutal, yo, so treat yourself to a nice cup of chill.

Lemony Tea with Chamomile and Ginger

Ingredients
1 small Meyer lemon, sliced
2-3 tablespoons dried chamomile flowers
1 1/2" ginger, peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons honey, more to taste if needed

Directions
1. Combine all ingredients in a heatproof bowl.

2. Add 1 quart hot water, then allow to steep.

3. Strain and serve. (Provides four generous cups.)

Notes
If you don't have chamomile flowers, two teabags will do.
