Sweet, strong, and hot, this spicy tea is perfect for nursing a cold or to warm up on a chilly day. Remove the yellow lemon peel (leave the white pith) with a vegetable peeler. The ginger slices make a nice, medicinal treat, but you can discard before serving if you prefer. 

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 1 cup water, agave or honey, ginger, and lemon peel to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer briskly for 15 minutes. Add remaining 3 cups water and lemon juice. Heat. Remove and discard lemon peel. Ladle into mugs and garnish with spiral of lemon peel or lemon slices.
