This tea, Soothing Honey and Lemon Sore Throat Tea, is soothing (thanks to the honey), boasts a healthy amount of Vitamin C (thanks to the lemon), helps relieve a sore throat (thanks to the anti-inflammatory properties, gingerols and shogaols, in ginger), and provides a touch of beneficial minerals to a tired body (hey, salt!).
In a mug, add the hot water, lemon (squeeze the juice into the water first, then add the lemon), ginger slices, honey, and a pinch of salt. Stir the ingredients to dissolve the honey. Let the tea steep for about 5 minutes to infuse the ginger. After five minutes, press the ginger down to the bottom of the mug to help bring out the "juice." There's no need to strain the tea after it's done steeping.
Alternatively, you can make a stronger tea by boiling the water and ginger slices on the stove-top for 10 minutes. Then, add the remaining ingredients.
To Use: This is a one-time use remedy. Sip and enjoy!
