A simple tea that is a great hot drink if you are ill or under the weather because of the antioxidants found in the cinnamon sticks, honey and cloves along with lots of other health benefits. The iced version is a refreshing feel good drink that keeps the health benefits while adding more lemon and lots of ice. The main recipe is for the iced version.


750 ml (1 & half pints) of water

4 camomile tea bags

3 cinnamon sticks

15 Whole cloves

100ml of fresh lemon juice

100 ml of honey

Cold version

1 leamon

Ice cubes


Get a saucepan and bring all of the water to the boil. Next add all of the camomile tea bags, cinnamon sticks and cloves then let it simmer for 4 to 6 minutes. Remove the tea bags, cinnamon sticks and cloves and then stir in the lemon juice and the honey. If having the tea cold as a cooler your next step is to chill the tea, pour the tea over the ice and add lemon slices and any other topping/garnish.

The tea is slightly sour initially and then the sweetness of the honey kicks in followed by the spice of the cinnamon and cloves making this a refreshing cold drink and one I would recommend for the warmer weather.
