My preferred method of beating back a cold or that run-down feeling. Kawakawa is a traditional medicinal/magical plant, used by Maori to cure almost anything. Unfortunately it doesn’t taste that great on its own, so its a perfect match with the lemongrass and ginger – which mask the bitter flavour without removing the benefits. I find this has just the right amount of zing, and is extra delicious with a spoonful of honey!

That’s really interesting. It’s amazing how much plant lore we’ve forgotten since we started depending on antibiotics and other manufactured medicines.
