How to Make Lemon Tea Recipe

A cup of tea with the deep and soothing flavor of lemon is lemon tea.  Lemon tea is an absolutely rejuvenating beverage. As such tea, in any form, is revitalizing. The best part about lemon tea is that it is healthy. It is totally lemony because of the lemon juice, lemon zest and the lemon slice that goes into it. There are several benefits of lemon tea. I love to have lemon tea because I like the break from my regular milky tea. Lemon tea recipe is very simple and easy. Just a few things should be kept in mind and you will have a cup of perfect lemon tea. In this post, you will find lemon tea recipe with step by step pictures and video showing how to make lemon tea.

Lemon Tea Ingredients:

Lemons: Lemon and not lime are used to make lemon tea. Make sure to pick yellow and juicy lemons. Even the zest of lemon is added. To get the zest, grate the lemon’s skin. Only and only yellow part of it should be used. The white part is bitter and should not be used.

Teabags: I have used green tea to make lemon tea. You can use regular tea bags. I prefer green as the flavor is not too strong and the lemony flavor captures the beverage. Which so ever tea bags you use, make sure to steep it for proper time. If you steep it too long, the tea would be bitter and won’t taste good.

Sweetener: Nothing for me. Yeah, I do not add sweetener in my lemon tea. You can add sugar or honey as per taste.

Benefits of lemon tea:

  1. Boosts immune system

Lemon tea is very helpful in curing a cold and cough. It gives relief from sore throat. If suffering from cold and cough, little ginger too can be added for extra goodness.

  1. Works as detoxifier

The toxins present in our body lead to infections and diseases. Lemon detoxifies the body, by removing the toxins. Detoxification energizes the body and refreshes the mind.

  1. Helps in digestion

Lemon tea has a very soothing effect. Its detoxifying properties also contribute to maintaining the gut health.

  1. Rich in Vitamin C

Lemon tea is a wonderful source of Vitamin C. It is great for the skin. Also since vitamin C is very helpful in the absorption of iron, lemon tea also helps in the absorption of nonheme iron.

  1. Lemon with green tea makes a great combination

Lemon helps in the absorption of antioxidants of the green tea.

Possible Variations of Lemon Tea:

  1. Lemon Green Tea: Use green tea instead of regular tea powder to make lemon tea and you have your lemon green tea. I have used green tea in this recipe.
  2. Ginger Lemon Tea: Just add in ½ an inch of the ginger root while making lemon tea, to make ginger lemon tea.
  3. Spiced Lemon Tea: You can add in black salt and other spices like cinnamon, cloves, etc for the spiced lemon tea.
  4. Mint Lemon Tea: Very simple. Just add in a handful of fresh mint leaves to make mint lemon tea.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
