Sore Throat Tea

Like our Honey Lemon Ginger Tea, this soothing drink can help ease a sore throat and relieve the symptoms of minor seasonal colds and flus and Covid-19 symptoms. The combined ingredients can act as a natural decongestant and expectorant, and provide relief for painful sore throats.
Make a jar of this sore throat concentrate, to have on hand. Because nobody wants to be messing around in the kitchen when they've got a cold or flu!
The secret ingredient in this sore throat tea recipe is Manuka Honey. The unique anti-microbial properties of Manuka Honey, when swallowed, can aid in slowing secondary bacterial infections in your throat. Manuka Honey is also a proven anti-inflammatory with "coating" properties to ease the pain of a sore throat. We recommend our Manuka with 100+ MGO content in tea, multiple times daily throughout your cold, flu or Covid-19 infection.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Course Drinks


  • 1 storage jar with lid


  • 2 lemons, thoroughly cleaned and sliced
  • 2 pieces fresh ginger, finger sized, sliced
  • 1 cup Manuka Honey MGO 100+ (or your preferred honey)


  • Combine lemon and ginger slices in a jar.
  • Pour honey slowly over the lemon and ginger allowing time for the honey to sink into all the spaces and completely cover the fruit.
  • Screw the jar lid on tightly and refrigerate until needed. The mixture will form a jelly.
  • Add a spoonful of the jelly to a mug, pour on boiling water, stir and serve as required.


A teaspoon of ground cinnamon or nutmeg can also be added to the jar before pouring in the honey if preferred.

Why MGO 100+ Manuka Honey?

Manuka Honey contains powerful active ingredients.  We suggest our mid-strength 100+ MGO honey for this recipe as you can drink it multiple times a day throughout your whole cold, flu, or Covid-19 infection.  For very painful sore throats, you may consider 500+ MGO Manuka Honey.

Options for persistent sore throats

If your sore throat continues after your other cold, flu or Covid-19 symptoms subside, you may be experiencing a secondary bacterial throat infection.  You should speak to your healthcare provider about treatment options including high-strength Manuka Honey taken by the spoonful.

Note for healthcare and wellness professionals
