- Handful fresh holy basil leaves (or 3 tbsp dried)
- ½ inch chunk of fresh ginger root
- ¼ cup honey
- 1 liter water
Boil water; add holy basil and ginger root. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer for 5 minutes, keeping the lid on the pot. Remove the tea and strain out the herbs. Add honey and stir until dissolved. Tea can be taken by the spoonful or in larger doses, to coat the throat, dispel mucus and soothe the lungs.
