Immunity Boosting Tea Recipe: How To Make Honey Lemon Ginger Tea:
The ingredients of this healthy tea are pretty much self-explanatory! All you need is lemons, honey, ginger, tea leaves and water. You can prepare three cups of tea with this recipe.
You can use the classic chai patti in this recipe, but you can replace it with green tea leaves or chamomile tea leaves and Darjeeling tea leaves.
Start by placing a pan of water on high flame. Once the water boils, add shredded ginger. Let the essence of ginger be absorbed by the water. Add the tea leaves, lemon juice and honey. Once the tea leaves release colour, remove the pan from the stove. The tea is ready! Don’t forget to strain the tea before pouring it.
