This warm drink is mild and soothing. It's perfect when I want something warm to sip on that's not coffee or tea. Plenty of health benefits, too. The ginger is helpful to a upset stomach or if you've eaten too much (hello Thanksgiving!) Lemon peel is cleansing to the system, aiding in enzyme functions and raw honey is a powerful antibacterial, antioxidant that is also soothing to those with a cold. Most importantly - it tastes good.
