It is good to enjoy rainy or winter days with a cup of tea and some of your favorite snacks but these gloomy days also bring on flu, cold, cough etc. So, how about enjoying a comforting drink which can help in boosting immunity and gives you some relief from stuffy nose, sore throat and even nausea. Yes, I’m talking about a cup of soothing Lemon Ginger Honey Tea. I would suggest that you all should keep this recipe handy for these rainy days or winters when you tend to catch cold and flu easily.
Lemons are loaded with Vitamin C which helps to boost your immunity and detox your body. Ginger helps in digestion, nausea and soreness. Honey is a natural sweetener and energizes our body. I have added a pinch of turmeric which is a powerful spice and boosts your immunity. You can check out the recipe and benefits of Turmeric Milk from my earlier post.
