Honey Lime Tea

Honey Lime Tea
Honey Lime Tea

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.

Ginger & Corriander Tea (Inguru Koththamalli)

Ginger & Corriander Tea (Inguru Koththamalli)

Coriander & Ginger both have medicinal benefits. In Sri Lanka we use Coriander (koththamalli) & ginger (Inguru) tea as a cure for common cold. This can be said as a home remedy, however most Sri Lankans are used to drink it. Even this tea is beneficial on reducing muscle pain.
