Half a lemon

A thumb sized piece of peeled ginger shaved with a vegetable peeler

Squeeze of honey - manuka ideally


Boil a kettle of water

Put a little of the boiling water in the teapot to warm it through and then pour away

Add the ingredients to the teapot and top up with boiling water

Stir very well, squeezing the lemons with the back of the spoon to get all of the juice and flavour

Pour into a mug and enjoy

It is equally enjoyed by the kids when they are under the weather and they enjoy helping to make it - especially squashing the ingredients in the teapot!


Adults might like to add something a little stronger, such as little whiskey, to the cup before adding the tea. I'm positive this aids recovery, honestly! Just remember to enjoy it responsibly!
