Ginger, lemon and honey tea

Ginger, lemon, honey tea remedy for flu and colds

I have flu and I feel really, really sorry for myself. This couldn’t have happened at a worst time. I’ve missed gym for two days :(

Well when life hands you lemons you experiment with home-made flu remedies.

I’ve made myself a steaming cup of Ginger, lemon and honey tea. Although there is no tea in it, it is drank like a tea.

The ginger heat you up from inside, the lemon is a good source of Vitamin C and the honey acts a natural cough suppressant.

4 tbs of lemon juice

2 tbs grated fresh ginger

Honey to taste

Simmer the water, ginger lemon and grated fresh ginger in a pot for 15 minutes. Pour into cup and add honey to taste. You could add less or more ginger if you prefer.

  1. I think it’s that time of the year. Yesterday it was sunny then spitting icy windy rain. We literally just made a big batch of this ‘tea’ yesterday as my daughter is sick and I’m drinking it as a preventative…and cause it’s just so good.


  2. Love this! Just posted about it yesterday… favorite!


  3. One of my favorite winter times drinks is hot/warm lemonade.

    The spoon is cool too !


  4. Im a big supporter of the homemade cold remedy of a lovely honey, ginger and lemon tea. I tend to go heavy on the ginger as I find the gently heat of ginger helps with colds and coughs. Your photographs are great and I’m slightly in love with your coin spoon


  5. looks great! I have had a sore throat all week, think this is exactly what I need :-)


  6. I like that beverage.. I want to try to make it..
