Now I am telling you what to do then

We have these problems basically in winter. I do have tonsil problem, to prevent them naturally I drink ginger and lime tea a lot. Well, there is medicine for removing cold, flu and cough problem.

Doctor tells you to take medicine like antibiotic to get better soon from cold problem. But I am not going to tell you so, I rather tell you to drink ginger & lime tea, they have no side effect as well.

My mom used to make these type of tea for me during winter, when i had cold problem. However, let's go and make some ginger tea and lime tea.

A cup of tea with a piece of cake is not a bad idea!

Making tea with Electric Kettle

Are you looking for nice and good quality Electric Kettles? I have selected an Electric Kettle that you might like.

Do you like red color of electric kettle? If so then you can prefer this one. It is an excellent electric kettle by which you can easily boil water within a short time.


Ginger Tea Recipe - How to Make Ginger Tea

Ginger tea is very easy to make, now I am going to tell you the ingredients you need. Check them out!


1) Tea bags

2) Ginger - 3/5 thin ginger slices

3) Water - 2 cups

4) Sugar - 2 teaspoons sugar (Based on your sugar taste preference)

5) Extra ingredient - Honey (not necessary)


At first you need to peel the ginger then wash it with water. Then slice the ginger into 3 to 5 thin pieces. Have you done this, if you have done then put the ginger slices in a small bowl.

After doing that, boil drinking water with your electric kettle, remember only 2 cups and add the ginger's 2/3 slices. Boil the water for 3 minutes. Meanwhile you can add a tea bag, sugar into a tea cup.

Once the water is boiled for 3 minutes, when you smell of the ginger then switch off the stove or hitter and slowly pour the water into the cup. Then you just stir the cup with a teaspoon and now it is ready to drink a cup of homemade healthy ginger tea.

Lime Tea Recipe - How to Make Lime Tea

This is one of my favorite teas; I drink it when I stay time at home. Now I want to tell you how you can make a cup of lime tea within a very short time.


1) Tea bags

2) Lime

3) Water - 2 cups

4) Sugar - 2 teaspoons sugar (Based on your sugar taste preference)

5) Extra ingredient - Honey (not necessary)


You almost follow the same process of making ginger tea but there is a difference, I have added ginger slices into teapot while drinking water. This time we will not do so.

Get a lime, it is better if you find a fresh one. Slice it into 4 pieces but you need 1 or 2 pieces of lime only. Anyway, now squeeze the lime slices into a cup you are going to make the tea. Then don't forget to add sugar in it, it depends on your taste, you can add sugar less or more based on your taste ok. Then put the tea bag in cup.

On the other hand, boil the water, add 2 cups of water in the electric tea kettle and boil it for 5 minutes, it is better if you boil drinking water, so that you don't have to boil it for long.

Once water is boiled then you switch off the stove and pour the water into the cup. Now you just stir the cup with a teaspoon and enjoy your lime tea. Oh add honey if you want, honey is better for our body and always healthy.

      I sure like the look of the Hamilton Beach red electric kettle. It's such a convenience. Now I must admit that you taught me something. I've been just slipping a few slices of ginger into my teapot and letting it steep, but I can see from your description that I'd get a better flavor by boiling it in the water for a bit. Thanks.

      Ginger tea is a great way to tackle colds the natural way. I have it 2-3 times a week. Someone told me long back, you will not find many oversize/overweight Chinese people even though they eat lots of red meats etc , the secret is the tea that they keep sipping. Moral of the story : tea is highly beneficial for overall health. Thanks for sharing this lens with us.

      I drink a hot tea I make with ginger syrup every day. Also drink cold 'cordial' made with ginger syrup and aloe juice with water.... yum.

      Will have to try making my tea with just a few slices of fresh ginger and some honey.

      I also make a 24 hour ginger beer from fresh ginger, from a recipe found on squidoo - it is brilliant!

      Great lens on Tea! Although I love my cup of coffee, I drink several cups of tea a day. When we where in Paris this fall, we rented a flat...they had tea from all over the world from others that stayed there...I took one of each and never tasted such good tea, some of the teabags were silk with beautiful labels which I kept to see if I can find here in the USA.
