Recipe for Citrus Honey and Ginger Tea

At this time of the year, it is important to boost your immune system. Ginger is particularly good at doing this, and Lemons and Oranges are well known for Vitamin C, vital for a healthy immune system. In this recipe for citrus honey and ginger tea I use raw honey. Raw honey is packed full of nutrients and I use it regularly in drinks and on our breakfasts at this time of the year. The other two ingredients which do not always get exposure as boosting our immune system is cinnamon and turmeric. They make a delicious addition to this tea.


1 whole lemon, sliced
A large knob of ginger, sliced
1 cinnamon stick
5 cups water
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
2 heaped Tbsp raw honey
1 large orange, juice freshly squeezed


Place all ingredients, except the honey in a medium saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil and then lower the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in the raw honey plus the freshly squeezed juice of your orange. Stir well and finally pour into your mugs.

Alternative –

With left over tea, I pop it in the fridge and the next day, drain it and discard the lemon and ginger. I then add a further two heaped Tbsp raw honey and another two cups of water. You can use this as a cold tea, or as a base for a warming drink. (as in the picture below)
