Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 5 minutes

Yields: 1 serving

2 cloves fresh garlic
Fresh lemons for juicing
10-12 oz Water
A dash of cayenne pepper, if desired




  1. Bring the water to a boil.
  2. As the water is heating up, take your garlic cloves and press them to release the juices.  Cut each in half.
  3. Places the cut, pressed garlic cloves (and cayenne pepper if desired) into a mug and pour the boiling water over it.
  4. Cover the mug and let the mixture sit for 5-7 minutes.
  5. Uncover the mug and squeeze the juice of half a lemon into the mug.

Drink and enjoy!  Don’t forget to eat the garlic!
The beauty of this tea is that it’s NOT supposed to taste good.  It’s purpose is to kill whatever germs are in you and to get you up and on your feet again, albeit smelling like garlic.

For best results, don’t be shy, drink 3-5 mugs of this garlic tea per day.



My helpful hint-

Use what you have on hand.  If you don’t have fresh garlic but you have minced garlic, use a heaping tablespoon of the minced garlic, more if you’re brave.

Same goes for fresh lemons.  If you have pure lemon juice on hand, use that.  2-3 tablespoons should be good. 

Why Cayenne pepper?

Cayenne pepper helps to increase your body temperature and gets things moving around.  You might notice a clearing of your sinuses or a flush in your cheeks.

The cayenne pepper is trying to move around any congested parts- especially mucus.

Yes!  That means that you might be breaking up mucus with the cayenne pepper.  Be prepared with tissues!
