Few weeks ago I was down with flu and cough.I couldn’t bear it.When I went to the doctor,her advice was try to recover naturally without medicine as I am pregnant.Thats good not to take pills unwantedly.(anyway she advised me to visit her if I am not recovering) First I tried Ginger and Corriander Tea which we commonly use in Sri Lanka as a herbal remedy for common cold.
But I was tired with continuous coughing.
I heard about this honey lime tea from a friend and tried it as there is no harm of trying honey and lime together.This is a simple tea recipe which is used as a remedy for sore throat or cough.Really it was helpful to sooth my throat while I had bad coughing.
I guess it can be served as a cold summer drink by cooling and adding some ice over it.But as a remedy for cough,use it as a hot drink.Sip warm honey lime tea slowly. It will sooth the throat.
Ingredients (for 1 tea)
1 cup hot water
2-3 tsp. Honey
4-6 tablespoons lime juice
In a tea cup, mix honey with hot water. Add lime juice and stir well.
It is ready to serve.
Please leave me a comment if you try this recipe.Do you have any other herbal remedies to share?

Just in time for the season! My daughter had a sore throat a trip to the doctor and $100 later we bought cough drops, no really. I will be book marking this recipe. Thank you for sharing it on our Four Season Blog Hop.
Thanks for the info! I always drink honey and lemon tea(either hot or cold). Other than that, I’ll drink water. But I’ll definitely have to switch up and try the lime. Congrats on your pregnancy, btw!! Thanks so much for sharing this on the link up!! Have a good one!!

Thanks so much for the recipe…I woke this morning with a mild sore throat…will make this at bedtime.
Over from Miz Helens
I am headed to the kitchen right now to make this tea. I have been coughing my head off from allergies and this looks so soothing. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and have a great week!
I was not kidding, I went to the kitchen and made the tea right away and have been sipping it while I work. It is so soothing and the cough has stopped! Thank you so much!!
I have a friend with a cough so I shared this with her right away. I find tea and honey to be very healing. It really makes me feel like I can breathe better. Thank you so much for sharing this with our Let’s Get Real readers. I hope you come back to visit us often. I feel blessed to have met you.
