Lemon Tea

I love lemon tea, especially for the winter season. It is also perfect if you’ve got a cold.

In our country, tea with lemon is usually made with black tea. Black tea is rich in antioxidants and has a deep flavour that goes very well with lemon. We call it Lebu Chá. Chá is tea and Lebu is lemon.

In Calcutta (West Bengal) there is a very popular version of Lebu chá that is served in street stalls. They make it with black tea and lemon. Besides, they add Himalayan black salt and ginger powder which gives it a unique taste.

But today I am going to prepare my lemon tea using only black tea and lemon.

 Ingredients

  1. 250ml water
  2. One teaspoon loose black tea or 1 tea bag
  3. Half lemon
  4. Sugar or honey

 

Instructions

    – Boil the water in a pot.

    – Add the loose tea or the teabag.

    – Turn off the fire and cover the pot.

    – Leave it covered for one minute and then strain it into a teapot.

   – Pour the tea in the cups and squeeze half a lemon juice into each cup.

   – Add sugar or honey and enjoy it.
