The monsoon has been taking its toll on my health lately. I had a sore throat last week, and another one today. However, I’ve noticed that what’s really helped cure it is my husband’s blend of chai.
Here’s what it contains:
- Black pepper powder — 1/2 teaspoon.
- Ginger — an inch or two, sliced finely.
- Honey — 1 teaspoon.
- Lemon — juice of a small one.
- Water — a large cup.
Make it by boiling the water, ginger, and pepper together. Then, add it to the cup with the honey and lemon (you can remove the ginger pieces if you wish).
It burns my throat, but miraculously soothes and stops the soreness soon after. It’s worked for me both times now!
