This tea saves lives. Well sorta… As my illness has transformed from laryngitis to a chest infection, I’ve soothed my throat with my homemade lemon, ginger, honey, turmeric and chilli tea. Its fiery tingle has made it an effective substitute for cough drops, with the added health benefits that it has way less sugar and it’s kept me hydrated.
How to make:
A quarter of a lemon, one teaspoon of honey, 3 slices of ginger, half teaspoon of turmeric, half teaspoon of chilli and 2-3 cups of boiled water depending on how strong you like your tea. Being fresh, it will take a little longer to infuse – roughly 5-8 mins. Feel free to change the balance of the ingredients to suit your taste.
