Spiced Ginger Lemon Tea

Spiced Ginger Lemon Tea

When there a nip in the air or the mellow sounds of rain elates the heart, all that I need is a hot cup of tea. Sitting by the window, talking to my plants, reading a book or writing my blog while sipping tea is my way to experience pleasure.

This is one such herbal tea that makes my soul warm and refreshed. Also, my first go-to drink when I feel a bit under the weather is a warm soothing cup of this spiced ginger lemon tea. I like to sweeten my tea with a spoonful of honey but feel free to use any sweetener of choice or as per dietary restrictions. Adding basil seeds gives it a lot of desired texture and health benefits too. 

Here’s how I make this soothing tea at home –

Soak half a tsp of basil needs in water for 2-3 mins. Strain and keep aside.
Boil 2 cups of water, add 1 inch grated ginger, 2 whole black pepper, 1/4 tsp fennel seed and a pinch of cinnamon powder. Let it brew on low flame covered with a lid, for 10 mins.
In a tea cup add 1 tsp lemon juice and 1/2 tsp honey (can use any sweetener of choice). Pour in the tea and top it up with fluffed basil seeds.
