Lemon, Honey and Mint Tea 檸檬蜂蜜薄荷茶

As we all know, lemon and honey are both very good for sore throats. I used to make this tea without mint, but we happened to have a bunch of leftover mint in the fridge, so I decided to try it with mint this time. Not only does it have a soothing effect for the throat, but it also adds a nice flavour to the tea! Besides the mint, I used a little bit of ginger as well because it's warming, This is the perfect tea if you have a sore throat or cough with fever. Drink it throughout the day while it's hot. I hope it helps you as it did for me.

Lemon, Honey and Mint Tea (makes 1 pt)

A: 3      thin slices of ginger
    1/2   lemon, thinly sliced
    4 C   water

A handful of mint, separate the stem and leaves, keep both

B: 2 heaping T honey
    2T lemon juice, freshly squeezed

*T = tablespoon, t = teaspoon, C = cup


1. Combine A and mint stems in a medium sized pot and cover. Bring it up to a boil, then turn down the heat to low and let it simmer for 3 minutes.

2. Turn the heat off, and add the mint leaves to steep for 1 minute.

3. Add B and stir until the honey has dissolved. Strain and serve it hot right away! *You can make a 2nd batch by just adding more water to the pot without taking out the mint leaves. When it comes to a boil, turn the heat off and let it sit for 1-2 minutes. Add same amount of B, strain and serve.
