Lemon Spiced Honey Tea

Warm up with the drop in temperatures with this classic tonic. Our bodies aren’t able to make vitamin C on their own, it’s important to include plenty of vitamin C-containing foods in your daily diet such as citrus fruits!

Makes: 1


½ tsp honey
Zest and juice of ½ lemon
1cm ginger, thinly sliced
1 pinch of cayenne pepper or 1 tsp fresh diced red chilli (optional)
1 cup boiling water
1–2 slices lemon
Boil a full kettle of water.


1. Add honey, lemon zest and juice, ginger and cayenne pepper/chilli (if using) to a small tea pot or jug.

2. Stir in boiling water until honey has dissolved, then allow tea to steep for about 5 minutes, until the ginger becomes aromatic.

3. Pour tea into a mug, straining if desired, add a slice of lemon and enjoy.
