If you feel a slight chill or tickle in your throat make sure you try this ginger tea recipe asap! The ginger and onion have a slight diaphoretic action; this means they will cause a slight sweat. The best thing to do is drink the tea as soon as you feel a cold coming on and rug up and go to bed. When you wake the symptoms will be gone.

  2. Slice four to five ten cent piece sizes of ginger
  3. Add these two and a half cups of water with one teaspoon of brown sugar or honey
  4. Bring them to the boil then simmer for five minutes
