Chamomile-Ginger-LemonTea Concoction

I’ve been coughing for almost a month now since Frederick and I went for a few days of vacation in thePhilippines(he’s now back  in Congo and I’m in Signapore, sad :-( ) He bought me a cough syrup (robitussin) but it’s not working, I’d probably go visit a GP doctor tonight or tomorrow.

Anyway, I made myself this tea concoction last night. When I'm a kid, my Lola Paring or my parents usually make Ginger tea (salabat) when somebody is coughing at home.  I've also read that chamomile tea is an effective home-remedy for coughs.  Lemon is too. I tried to mix all three and I think it worked.  I had a good sleep last night as compared to the previous nights where my persistent coughing hinders my sleep.  That’s why I have puffy eyes :-(

This concoction is not only good for cough & flu, but also for sore throats, tonsillitis, digestion, and of course, it aids in weight loss :-)

Ingredients:

Lipton Chamomile tea– 1 teabag

Ginger roots, crushed and chopped – 1 thumbs size

Lemon juice from freshly squeezed half lemon fruit

Honey – 1 tsp

Water – 1 cup

Procedure:

1)     Boil water and ginger roots for 5 minutes.  Remove from fire.

2)     Steep in it the chamomile tea bag for 5 minutes.  Let cool.

3)     Add the rest of the ingredients to the cooled green tea-ginger concoction
