Ginger root. The wonderful, digestion-aiding ginger boosts circulation and takes the body's vitality up a couple of notches. Its stimulating warmth lends a subtle spicy tang.
Elderflower. Light and purifying, these summer blossoms help to cleanse by increasing circulation to the periphery, which induces a very mild sweat, helping to halt the spread of any seasonal viruses.
Turmeric root. A close relative of ginger, the golden super-spice turmeric is relied on in India as a gentle herbal antibiotic useful for infections. It also makes this tea look like liquid gold.
Lemon juice. Pleasingly mouth-watering, lemon juice adds a refreshing tang to the tea and cuts through stuck mucus. Lemons are packed with natural Vitamin C and immune-enhancing bioflavonoids that both taste and do good.
Manuka honey. Sweet, soothing and nourishing, manuka honey combines the therapeutic benefits of honey with the antimicrobial qualities of the manuka tree. This is a natural powerhouse in a pot.
