Lemon Honey Tea
Ok, so this lemon honey ‘tea’ isn’t actually a tea at all :). But, it is a delicious hot beverage that I find to be very relaxing. Upon waking in the morning, I like to make this hot beverage, especially during the long, cold winter months. It packs a bit of vitamin C, which helps keep my immune system strong against invaders. There are also other benefits, like increasing potassium levels, better digestion and liver function, and even possibly boosting your metabolism. So if you need a little warmth in your day, start it off with this healthy lemon honey tea!

Lemon Honey Tea
This tea is perfect for cold winter mornings, or a great way to wind down for the evening.
- 8 oz. water
- 1/2-1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1/2-1 tablespoon honey
Fill an electric kettle with enough water to fill your mug. Turn it on to start the boiling process.
While the water is coming to a boil, freshly squeeze desired amount of lemon juice into a mug. I generally eyeball about 1/2-1 tablespoon.
Squeeze some honey onto a spoon. Again, about 1/2-1 tablespoon worth.
When the water is boiling, shut the kettle off, and fill up your mug.
Take your honey covered spoon and give the tea a good stir until all of the honey is dissolved. Enjoy!
