When my siblings and I were sick with the cold, this is the tea my mom always made for us. It not only filled our bodies with warmth, but also served as a natural remedy for colds. The tea is steeped in fresh ginger, dried date, and cinnamon stick and then served with honey, fresh lemon juice and pine nuts. I always drink this tea when I feel like I'm getting a cold or have one! In this video, I show you my mom's recipe.
For the tea
6 Cup (96 tbs)
