Holiday Recovery Tea

The holidays are a time of family, friends, festivities and food. Along with that can come stress, colds, and the body needing some serious TLC. Here’s a simple drink that is perfect to drink first thing in the morning, after a big meal, or before going to bed.   

I call it Holiday Recovery Tea, because it is packed with detoxifying, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bloating ingredients that will boost your immune system and soothe your body.  

Here is the recipe: 

  • 1/2 of a lemon, sliced 
  • 1 teaspoon of raw honey 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of tumeric 
  • 1 marble size knot of ginger
  • 2 dashes of cayenne pepper 


  1. Heat water in a kettle. 
  2. Combine honey, cinnamon, tumeric, and cayenne pepper into a teacup with a spoon.
  3. Add ginger and lemon to the honey and spice mixture. 
  4. Once the water is hot, pour on top of the mixture and let steep for 3-4 minutes. 
  5. Enjoy. Once, you’ve finished, you can add more hot water to keep enjoying.
