Hot Lemon Ginger Honey Tea
April 10, 2012 § Leave a comment
In the cold Northern Parts of India, a tall cup of hot lemon ginger honey tea is satisfying. The heating qualities of ginger warms the body and after chai, this is my second favourite Indian tea. At home in Canada I make this tea on a brisk winter’s day or if I feel a cold coming on. In India you can get variations of this drink by omitting an ingredient, lemon ginger, ginger honey etc. You can make a herbal version of this tea or lightly steep a tea bag until the tea turns a golden amber. Adjust the quantities to satisfy your taste.
