Mother nature is a dirty little tease. I assumed, oh so incorrectly, that after 2 weeks of living with sick people, and not getting sick myself, that I had some sort of immunity to their illness. WRONG. The common cold want to be my new best friend…
My Brazilian host grandmother first made me a similar tea, and perhaps it was a coincidence, but it seemed to work wonders! Since then, whenever I have a cold (or anyone at my house does), I make citrus tea. Plus it’s super tasty!
Cut lemon and orange, squeeze all halves into a pot with water (I add the squeezed halves in as well), add ginger.
Bring to a boil over medium-medium high heat, about 10-15min.
Add honey to taste, and enjoy!
..and to any fellow cold sufferers, I am wishing you well!
