How To Make An Amazing Sore Throat Tea
This amazing sore throat tea recipe is so delicious that I bet you’ll be using it as a hot drink even when you don’t have a sore throat! I can’t think of a reason why you shouldn’t! This recipe actually really simple to make – requiring just honey and sliced lemons – but the secret is in leaving it to “work its magic”: Honey is a natural preserving agent and after time the lemons dissolve into the honey to make a fragrant, sweet jelly-like “preserve” that contains the healthy goodness of both.
1) Wash the lemons carefully before use. I would suggest to soak them in a bowl of water in which a cup of apple cider vinegar has been added. Just let them sit in there for 20 minutes, the ACV will clean them. Then rinse off.
3) Pour on honey until lemons are completely covered. If the honey is too solid, you may wish to warm it (place in a pan of warm water) until it liquefies enough. Close the jar.
5) To make the drink itself, simply use a spoonful in a cup with boiling water.
Note – the quality of your end product, as with all preparations, is only as good as the quality of your ingredients. Therefore we suggest to use only organic lemons and raw, local honey. The choice of honey is really important these days – because a lot of the “big brand” imported honeys have been found to be adulterated with high fructose corn syrups or other “fake” ingredients and some may not even contain any actual honey at all.
