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 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

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.

  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. 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
