Sickness – we all dread it; and yet, we can’t avoid it. Being sick can take a serious toll on your singing, but you’re about to find out the secret to quick, sore throat relief.
Sore Throat Relief for Singers
I have developed my singing blend to be a very cool and soothing tea, with the hibiscus giving a blast of color and fruity flavor. Adding the ginger root, honey, and lemon juice really rounds out the tea and provides a natural, healing remedy.
1 Tbsp. Singer’s Tea or Throat Coat Tea
½ inch cube. Ginger Root
2 tsp. Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Tbsp. Honey
Put the honey into the bottom of a 16 oz. mug, and pour boiling water to an inch below the top, dissolving the honey completely. Add the ginger root and your tea-ball into the hot water, and steep for 5 minutes.
Remove the tea-ball, and stir in the lemon juice.
Caution: your tea will be very hot. Sip slowly, and for best results, drink the whole thing as warm as possible.
