Ginger Lemon Tea

Amongst other things, ginger is a great natural anti-inflammatory.  And with the spices, plenty of antioxidants are present.  I drink this every day. 

Peel and chop in small pieces a 1/2 inch chunk of ginger.  Place the following into a small pot:

Ginger pieces
Juice from half a lemon
3-5 whole cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2-1 tsp cinnamon
2-2.5 cups water

Bring to a boil, then turn down to lowest setting.  Simmer for at least 10 minutes.  Strain into tea cup and add raw honey to taste.  Save the rest for the next day.
