Instant Pot Immune Booster Tea

Instant Pot Immune Booster Tea is just the thing that you need to make and drink if you’ve come down with a cold or are starting to feel a little icky. It’s also a really fabulous detox tea!

I’ve worked in the pits of the restaurant industry for over 20 years, and had the pleasure with working with a German pastry chef. In the restaurant industry, you can’t afford to be sick. Once one person gets sick, everyone else is sure to follow.

PLUS you have to worry about if your manager is going to let you go home or not. Whether or not you’re sick, doesn’t matter. The restaurant needs those warm bodies on the floor, and unless you are literally dying on the floor curled up in a fetal position, they were not sending you home.

Feeling Sick with the cold or just icky? Then try this Instant Pot Immune Booster Tea! It's fabulous, and will help boost your immune system naturally. I SWEAR by this stuff! #instantpot #naturalremedy #immunesystem #instantpottea #immunebooster #healthy #recipes

Honestly, I can’t remember the pastry chef’s name because it’s just been too long. However, if one of my friends remember her name, then I will update the post.

Anyways, she used to make this great big pot of what we called her “Witches Brew.” During the cold and flu season, she always had one steeping everyday on the stove for us.

We literally drank this stuff by the gallon! Does it taste amazing? Not really, but you get used the ginger citrus flavor. Also, the honey used to sweeten it helps to bite through it and makes it somewhat bearable. But I’m telling you, this stuff is like a miracle in a cup when it comes to stomping out cold and flu symptoms!Feeling Sick with the cold or just icky? Then try this Instant Pot Immune Booster Tea! It's fabulous, and will help boost your immune system naturally. I SWEAR by this stuff! #instantpot #naturalremedy #immunesystem #instantpottea #immunebooster #healthy #recipes

Of course, I’m not a medical professional at all, so please make sure you see a doctor if your symptoms get worse. I’m not here to give medical advice, but I’m here to tell you that I LOVE homeopathic remedies that actually work.

Instant Pot Immune Booster Tea Totally Works! Here’s Why.

The biggest ingredient to the instant pot immune booster tea is Ginger. Ginger is both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. So it helps to reduce your all those icky germs inside of your body.

Then there’s all amazing vitamin C coming from the Lemons and Oranges.

The parsley in it is fabulous for your body! Parsley is an antibacterial, antifungal, and is a high source of antioxidants.

Your body deserves all of these great properties coming from the instant pot immune booster tea! THESE are the reasons why that witches brew of hers is so amazing to drink while you’re sick.

    1. You don’t have to strain it immediately. You can just ladle it out as you need it, or strain through a cheese cloth and store in containers for later usage 🙂

  1. How long does it last? I would probably be the only one drinking it and would put it into jars and let them seal before putting in the refrigerator.

  2. I just used the last of my ginger root in another recipe but would like to make this today. Can I use fresh ginger that’s already been ground? How much? Thank you

    1. Yes…it’s still very pungent for the amount of liquid. However, you can always add a little extra ginger if you would like to.

  3. Thanks for this recipe. It is similar to a drink I buy at the store which has a lot more sugar. I like this version better. I heated up a cup and added an echinacea tea bag for an extra boost.

  4. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It is the first thing I made in my instant pot, and I am on my second batch! I am determined to kick this cold.

    1. I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to use coconut sugar. The honey is added in there for a hint of sweetness, but for the healing properties of the honey. So, you don’t have to add the coconut sugar in while making it. You can simply add any in for a hint of sweetness.

  5. Always late to the party….can this be made and frozen in batches? I see you say a couple of months in the fridge, I’m assuming because of the honey.
    Thank you….

    1. Welcome to the party! OF course, you can definitely freeze them. I’m sure they will last up to 3 months, at least.

  6. These days in the food industry, you can’t work sick. Not with a cough, not with a fever, and definitely not with diarrhea. And that was even before Covid. Management can get into BIG trouble if it’s found out that they are working sick employees.

  7. I think this would be a great recipe to add to any remedies. I would like to add a few things… sorry if someone mentioned it but here goes.
    I would use organic for this recipe. Especially if you allergic skins on. I also have a recipe that is similar however no celery or parsley which I’m definitely going to try(I have fresh parsley growing so yah). Mine is just organic ginger(however much you want) and sliced organic lemon/limes your choice and I steep it like it’s tea and drink. You can add honey but I don’t and I sometimes will add fresh bay leaf for extra vitamin c, b6, immune booster, and vitamin a. It’ll also help with an upset stomach, stuffy nose and sinus pressure. So consult your physician and ask questions prior to use since drugs may be effected while using and herbs/meds if you’re on any. However I drink hot lemon and ginger all throughout the colder season just as an aid and when we go out to eat I order hot lemon water instead of just plain water. So drink up it’s truly delish🥰🥰

    1. You totally can! Just put it on high for 3 hours or low for 5 1/2 – 6 hours for optimal property “brewing”.

  8. Hello,
    Thank you for this recipe.
    I am now going to make my second batch. It really is very good for sniffles and a cough. I drink mine chilled with no honey and it’s delicious this way – for my taste.
    Can I add a reminder to wash your fruit/vegetables very well before using. I’m sure you all do this!
    Thanks again for a lovely recipe.

  9. Could you use something else besides the Parsley? I hate Parsley but I would love to try this and my husband just dug up a ton of ginger and turmeric root!
