Honey, Lemon & Ginger Tea

Whether it's the change in season and you want to give your immune system a boost, or you are wanting a soothing drink before bed - we have the tea for you!

For us, going from Summer to Autumn always has us feeling a bit off as we go from cold days to hot days and everything in between. This sweet and spicy tea is a great source of benefits and comforts whatever the season! 

You will need the following ingredients:

  • Ginger
  • Fresh Lemon
  • Honey
  • Mint (Optional)


  1. Cut off the outside skin of the ginger root carefully with a knife. Grate the ginger until you have ½ cup of ginger.
  2. In a large saucepan add 8 cups of water and bring to boil.  
  3. Add the ginger to the pot when the water comes to a boil, reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer. 
  4. Juice the 2 lemons; don't worry about the seeds, they will be strained out later.
  5. Add the juice from the lemons into the pot and the lemon rind as well.
  6. Add ½ cup of dried mint leaves
  7. Add 3 tablespoons of honey 
  8. Turn down the pot to medium heat and boil for 5 minutes
  9. Stir the tea again, then pour into a teapot or straight into a mug using a strainer.

If you have left over tea it can be stored in a container in the fridge and reheated in a pot when you next want it. Or you can make ice cubes and add them to soda water when you next want an icy cold drink!
