Jasmine Tea with Honey and Lemon


106edited

How’s your 2013 going so far?  I hope you’re all staying warm and healthy.  With the cold temperature and changing season, many of my friends and loved ones are a bit under the weather lately.  I hope you will all feel better soon.  Whenever I’m not feeling too well, this Jasmine Tea with Honey and Lemon is one hot beverage that I like to make.  It’s warm and soothing; it’s perfect in this cold weather.

It’s really easy to prepare as well.  Simply brew your favorite Jasmine tea.  You can use tea bags or loose tea leaves.  Add one or two slices of lemon into the tea cups, muddle with a spoon to extract some juice and oils from the lemon peels.

Then, drizzle a teaspoon or two of honey, stir well and enjoy with your favorite cookies and cuddle up in a warm blanket.  (The cookies in the picture about were Almond Cookie Crisps.  Please click here for the recipe.)

I guaranteed that you’ll feel better in no time.  Please stay warm and dry my friends.  Until next time, please take care.

  2. This is my favorite cold-time drink to make! I especially love Ten Ren's version with aloe, but this is great. Stay warm!

  12. With my bumper crop of Meyer lemons this year, I've been putting lemons in just about everything lately. Tea is definitely one of my fave ways to enjoy the floral tang of Meyers.

  14. You make tea look so beautiful :) What a lovely spread. I am such a huge fan of tea. I have at least 1 litre of green tea a day. My favourite is buddahs tears. I always make Tyler this variation when he is sick. It makes his man flu go away!

  15. Jasmine tea is my all-time favorite because of its many health benefits like detoxification and aid for digestion. I always have it home-brewed every other cold night until the perfect aroma is achieved in my antique silver teapot. Lemon on the other hand adds a real lovely tinge of flavor to the tea and honey has its own benefits like being soothing to the throat and cools your body down. I think this is just the perfect combo for those under the weather.
