My daily cup of astragalus and ginger tea wasn’t enough to ward off the sore throat I had the other day. I hate getting a cold because for me it’s usually accompanied by a cough that lasts for a few months. Since I’d only just gotten rid of the cough from my last cold, I knew it was time to break out the big guns–garlic tea. You heard me right.
I’m the master of tea and garlic tea is a sure fire way to kick that cold right out of your system. Here’s the recipe:
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 12 cloves garlic minced
- juice from 1 lemon
- honey to taste
Put your garlic and water in a pot. Bring to boil. Turn down heat and let simmer for ten minutes. Remove from heat and add lemon juice and honey. Strain into a cup and sip it throughout the day like a boss.
Pros of drinking garlic tea:
Get rid of colds fast.
Torture your significant other with your garlic breath.
Cons of drinking garlic tea:
It’s garlic tea.
