Ginger tea recipe (Dawa)

The tangy infusion was inspired by a combination of Indian, Egyptian, and Costa Rican wisdom for soothing the common cold. Make a pot in the morning when you are not feeling well and drink throughout the day, reheating by the mugful as needed.


  • ¼ cup honey, or to taste
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated ginger root
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 ½ cups boiling water

Below is the procedure of making the Kenyan "DAWA"

  1. Boil ginger water and squeeze some lemon into it in a teapot or 4-cup glass measuring beaker with spout.
  2. Add honey to taste and stir well until honey is dissolved
  3. Cover and let steep for 5 minutes.
  4. The ginger should sink to the bottom, but may be strained out while pouring into mug.
  5. Take while warm. While ginger is an antioxidant,the vitamin C present in lemon removes mucus and provides relief in pain.
