Tasty fresh ginger, lemon, lime , lavender honey teas!

Hello, my dear friends, I am back from my long Holiday,…yeah! Thanks for the many received emails from a lot of you, wondering if I still was alive & if I wasn’t sick! Ha! :)

I took a long holiday with my husband. We went to the Belgian seaside to reload ourselves & now, I am back with plenty of energy & I invented many tasty recipes too! :)

These lovely home-made teas , we drank in a cool lovely restaurant on our Holiday! It is a refreshing fresh ginger, lime, lemon & honey tea. It is so gooooddddd,…Yum!

Steeping the ginger for 15 minutes into the hot water!

Steeping the ginger for 15 minutes into the hot water with the lemon, lime &  lavender honey! :)

Recipe: For 2 large teas, each 300 ml

Ingredients:

600 ml just boiled water

2 thin slices of organic lemon, each slice cut into 2

2 thin slices of organic lime, each slice cut into 2

2 teaspoons of a good lavender honey = 1 teaspoon per tea

5 cm of fresh, peeled ginger, cut into 10 thinner round slices, 5 slices of ginger per tea

Method:

1. Take 2 larger see through glasses. Put 1 teaspoon of lavender honey into each glass bottom. Top with the 5 slices of fresh ginger, into each glass. Put 2 half slices of each lemon & lime into each glass. Top with 300 ml of just boiled hot water & stir everything round with a smaller long spoon. Let the ginger steep for about 12 to 15 minutes. Push with your spoon onto the ginger pieces into your hot tea. I like my tea best when the ginger has been steeped for about 15 minutes,…Yum Yummmm! I let the lemon, lime & ginger in my tea when I am drinking it. You can re-use it again for the next batch of tea! ;) Enjoy! :) If you liked this post, SUBSCRIBE to Sophie’s Foodie Files: It is free!  RSS Feed RSS – Posts

    I was wondering where you went! I am happy to hear that it was on a lovely vacation, and not that you were sick! That sounds so lovely to be by the Belgian seaside…I hope one day I can travel throughout Europe extensively! There is so much I’d like to see.

    Your teas are lovely, and I know that I will be making these at some point in the coming months. I have at least a cup of tea every day…there are so many different kinds out there, I never get bored!!

    Fabulous to hear that you had such a great time! Yes, I did miss you. Any hotels, restaurants or other places you visited that you think are a “not-to-miss”? Until now I have only been to the bigger belgium cities and a few villages but never to the sea side. I must go sometime!
    And this tea recipe sounds devine – just right for this cold november weather we are having!

    I’m glad that you both had a wonderful time away. It’s great to have a break every now and then, to forget about everything social-media related and to just have some quality time together :) Glad that you’ve come back refreshed and ready to write some wonderful new recipes. This one sounds wonderful! Love the idea of the ginger with the lavender honey, yumm. I am actually home sick from work at the moment and this drink looks divine. I’d love to give it a go soon! xx
