When I was a little girl my grandpa used to make me tea with honey, lemon juice, and a little whiskey whenever I was sick. He wouldn’t make me a whole cup, just about five sips worth. Now, it turns out tea and citrus is a good combo.

Apparently, drinking green tea with a little lemon helps your body get more of the antioxidants from the lemon. So next time you’re having tea, squeeze a little lemon in.
