How to Make Fresh Ginger Lemon Tea (and Why you should today!)

Sinus pressure, sneezing, and blowing my nose-that’s most of what I have done the last two days. So, my scripture review this morning was accompanied by some Fresh Ginger Lemon Tea. This fresh tea has awesome benefits that I wasn’t even aware I was missing out on! I’m pretty much wondering why I don’t drink it everyday! 😉
