In herbal medicine, ginger root promotes the elimination of intestinal gas as well as relaxing and soothing the intestinal tract. Both the lemon and the ginger root are rich sources of antioxidants that inhibit inflammation.


You can read more about the great medicinal properties of ginger, including tips how to buy and store ginger in my previous article how to use ginger as a medicine. I’ve also written about the health benefits of lemon water. Combining the benefits of both ginger and lemon is not only tasty, but a winning combination for great health.

Sipping a cup of hot ginger lemon tea:

* Relieves stress and mood swings
* Fights off flu, cough and cold
* Fights against cancer
* Keeps motion sickness at bay
* Aids digestion
* Eases joint pain in arthritis
* Improves immunity
* Enhances blood flow
* Prevents heart disease
* Cures low grade fever
* Refreshes the mind
* Detox your body and eliminate toxins
* Helps you lose weight

This recipe is taken from my e-book The Detox Guide that teaches you about the concept of detox and how to use detox to cleanse and energize your body. This guide provides the best information and safe ways to detox, including recipe ideas. The whole process helps to increase stamina and energy and improves the digestive process.


Detox Ginger Lemon Tea (makes 4 cups – 1 L)

2 inches (5 cm) ginger root
4 cups (1 L) filtered water
2 tbsp (30 ml) organic lemon juice
1-2 tsp (5 ml) whole stevia leaf or honey

Finely chop ginger root and infuse in freshly boiled water for 5 minutes, so the infusion maximizes the transfer of the active ingredients into the liquid. Add lemon juice, stevia or honey and stir. Serve hot or cold for a refreshing and revitalizing treat.

  2. yogesh mohan says:

    can we add this ingredients ginger,lemon in green tea!!

  3. Cheyenne says:

    Can i use ground ginger?

    • Jenny says:

      Fresh ginger is better as it have more gingerol (the active ingredient in ginger). Although ginger’s nutrient profile does undergo some changes during the drying process, it still offers up plenty of health benefits and is definitely worth adding to your diet if you cannot get fresh ginger.

  4. Dimakatso Dube says:

    Will ginger lemon tea help me loose weight? If not pls give me herbs for weight loss

  5. gypceegerl says:

    How much and how often should one drink this tea?

    • Jenny says:

      This is a safe drink that can be consumed on a regular daily basis as part of your daily fluid intake. There are no set guidelines as per how much and how often.

    • Diane says:

      I have been drinking fresh ginger in hot water why do I have the runs.

  6. hixien says:

  7. Namugayi Grace says:

    is it ok if i add sugar instead of honey?

  8. Trisha says:

    can you juice the ginger or I grind it into the tea instead of steeping it

  9. Ellina says:

    I wonder about honey in hot water/tea, honey looses it’s nourishing effect plus it becomes toxic (what I’ve heared)
    Should I then wait for this tea to be room temperatured before putting honey in to it?

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Ellina, this is a good question that is often being asked. From what I’ve read in the internet most enzymes found in honey are heat stable, therefore heating honey to 160F (71C) degrees for short periods of time does not affect the enzymes naturally found in honey. When honey is not heated past this point, it remains unpasteurized and has the healthful enzymes intact. When honey is pasteurized (heated past this point) those enzymes are cooked out.

  10. Scottro says:

    Better yet, skip the honey and go with organic maple syrup.

  25. Marty says:

    I love this ‘tea’ and drink Several cups A day. Delicious and energizing. Therefore, if I drink it after dinner I am energized for the night. Not conducive for sleep. Also ginger is a blood thinner. Accidentally cut my foot and bled a little too freely. So I have cut back to a couple of cups during the day. Still feel energized, joints are pain free. Thanks for all your wonderful info.

  26. Constance says:

    Is it good to drink while breastfeeding?

    • Jenny says:

      Consuming ginger in normal food quantities (unlike taking a concentrated supplement) is OK while breastfeeding. See more about it here.

  27. sole-mates says:

    A regular in our household. Ginger tea in itself is a wonder. Adding lemon and little bit of honey makes it incredibly delicious.

  28. sarrah says:

    I reckon that the most effective detox tea currently on the market is a small company from Australia called . This tea has been the most effective fat burner and cleanser in my experience with 100% natural ingredients and no laxatives. Would definitely recommend.

  29. Dorothy says:

    I love this tea but have constipation after drinking

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Dorothy, I don’t think there is any link between the tea to constipation. Drinking fluids along with consuming fiber rich foods suppose to aid constipation (see my article about constipation). I believe the reason for the constipation is a result of something else.

  30. temidayo says:

    I love this tea so much and I have been drinking it for months now , but I hope it doesn’t hinder fertility bcos am trying to conceive

    I am on a fat burning soup detox diet for 7 days, can I sweeten tea with honey?

  33. Sara says:

    Is better to take warm green tea with ginger, lemon,mint and many times to take this for belly reducing?

    • Jenny says:

      Green tea helps to boost metabolism and burn fat. The catechins found in green tea (the most significant is called EGCG) are responsible for boosting your metabolism and help to burn fat faster. Although green tea isn’t a weight loss miracle on its own, it may be helpful as a weight loss aid. SFGATE website recommend drinking 2-3 cups per day.

  34. Janice says:

    Hello I am a bit concerned as a friend of mine cuts their own ginger and lemon and adds honey to boiling water..which is fine but they are making a big soup mug of it every 15 – 30 mins from the minute they get up to the minute they go to bed.
    Their belly is really big and there is no sign of any weight being lost and they are on very strong medication for bio polar.
    I know I am most probably worrying over nothing as all natural.

  35. Eric says:

    I use lemon extract, honey, and ginger for my tea, what does that combination do for my body?

  36. Daryl says:

    Can this herb help lung ailments??

  37. Betty says:

    Do you have any natural remedies for post nasal drip and the awful nose smell?

    • Jenny Hills says:

      Hi Betty, according to WebMD website, there are several causes to post nasal drip, such as cold/flu, allergies and more. So you first need to find the root cause of the problem. If it’s an allergic reaction, you need to remove the allergen. If it’s cold/flu, then the treatment is different. So how you treat postnasal drip depends on what’s causing it. See more information in WebMD. Some of the recommendations in my article about how to get rid of throat mucus also apply to post nasal drip.

  38. Betty says:

    Thank you. I started detoxing with lemon and ginger and I try to remember to swallow more often. I will consult my doctor also.
