“Immunity-boosting ingredients—ginger, lemon and rosemary—are steeped with soothing chamomile tea and honey for a homemade health tonic. While the drink may help when you're sick, it's not a quick fix. Drinking wellness tonics, like this one, regularly over time may help boost your immune system. Serve hot, room temperature or cold.”

Ingredients

    • 4 cups boiling water
    • 6 bags chamomile tea
    • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
    • 4 slices lemon
    • 2-4 teaspoons honey
    • 2 sprigs rosemary, lightly bruised

Directions

  • 1 Stir boiling water, tea bags, ginger, lemon, honey and rosemary together in large heatproof bowl. Steep, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes. Strain the liquid through a fine-mesh sieve, pressing on the tea bags to get as much liquid out as possible.
  • To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days.
