"Feel Better" Immunity Tea

“Feel Better” Immunity Tea

the pure life


This tea will make you want to curl up on the sofa with a good book and a blanket, it’s just that good.

This immunity tea is my saviour during the colder winter months and it’s something I’ve been drinking for years now to help combat flu and cold viruses. I am seriously in love with this tea – there is nothing better than hot fresh ginger and lemon! I love making a big pot of this tea and leaving it on the counter for me to sip on throughout the day. It’s a wonderful digestion booster and great for supporting the immune system or when fighting that cold that just won’t go away!

"Feel Better" Immunity Tea

This immunity tea contains:

  • lemon – which is naturally alkalizing and anti-viral, aids in detox and packed with vitamin C
  • ginger – an inflammation-reducing powerhouse, helping to bust bacteria and viruses and is known for its’ wonderful properties that help to reduce nausea
  • ACV (apple cider vinegar) – a fermented tonic which will also help to kill bacteria, aid in digestion and boost metabolism, amongst other amazing things
  • cayenne pepper – stimulates blood flow, boosts digestion and ignites a fire-y sensation in the body
  • raw honey – a great natural sweetener known to combat allergies and help to soothe the throat during infection 

The best part? I encourage you to try this tea warm, but it can also be made iced in the summer months!

“Feel Better” Immunity Tea

  • 500ml water
  • 1 large piece of ginger (about 2 inches), finely chopped
  • The juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 tbsp raw local honey
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper, optional
  • 1 tsp raw, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar (I like Bragg’s brand)


  • Add the water, ginger, lemon juice, honey and cayenne (optional) to a small pot on the stove. Let the tea boil for a few minutes and then add to a teapot. Add the apple cider vinegar to a mug and add some tea. Sip daily for a rockin’ immune system!
