Feeling under the weather? Of course, nobody enjoys being sick, but with this delicious tea remedy, you can turn that frown upside down. The best cure to drive away that horrible cold monster is a huge hot cup of sweet and soothing honey lemon ginger tea.

Trust me, after a few cups of this herbal tea, your sore throat and stuffy nose will definitely thank you for the favor.

Originating from China and South Asia, ginger is known to be a “superfood”, granting you medical super powers with a sip. 

No, I’m kidding, it’s of course not some mystical magical plant that will cure your cold in less than a second, although we all certainly wish it was.

However, it does contain tons of antioxidants that reduces the risk of cancer, heart diseases, and speculated to possibly even help motion sickness.

The honey of this ginger tea will definitely soothe your throat meanwhile the lemon will help clear your sinuses. The best part yet, the mixture of sweet honey, spicy ginger, and zesty lemons make for a delicious combination. A tasty and simple way to eat your medicine, pretty amazing, maybe “superfood” wasn’t an understatement after all.
