Lemon Tea is a refreshing tea where lemon juice is added in black or green tea. It soothes the throat, prevents cough and congestion, and helps in weight loss. Here is how to make it.
Do try my other tea recipes like Hibiscus Tea, Saffron Tea, or Turmeric Ginger Tea.
Tea, is one of those beverages that is a must in almost every household.
Every morning begins with tea and when the office time ends, everyone just relaxes at the comfort of their home with another cup of tea.
For me, it is also a mind soother, that relaxes me every time I am tired or running a very busy schedule.
In between, when I get a cup of hot tea, it just makes everything better.
While I start my morning with everyone’s favorite Masala Chai, I like to relax in the evening with a soothing LEMON TEA or just like to sip it post Lunch.
Just like Masala Tea, this tea is also prepared with black tea but without milk and has a lot of lemon juice.
Easy to make, this heavenly tea gets ready in just 5 minutes.
Enjoy it on its own or serve it along with some snacks, the choice is yours.
