There are many amazing benefits of honey tea, including relieving menstrual cramps, treating cough and cold, soothing laryngitis, boosting immunity, fighting free radicals, and improving skin health. Let us discuss them in detail below.

Menstrual Cramps

By reducing the pain and tightness in the abdominal area, honey tea helps in relieving menstrual cramps. It also helps increase the blood flow and thereby promotes menstruation. Avoid drinking beverages that contain caffeine as this may exacerbate the pain and bloating associated with menstruation.

Cough & Cold

You should drink a cup of hot honey tea in order to relieve your cough and cold symptoms. While sipping on this herbal tea, you should also inhale the fumes coming from this tea as they help in relieving congestion in the chest and sinuses. The honey in this tea will also soothe your throat and thereby eliminate any associated pain and irritation. For best results, you can sip this tea right before you tuck yourself in bed at night.


If you are suffering from an infection of the vocal cords, honey tea can help relax and soothe them. Sip this tea slowly and also breathe in the steam to moisten your throat and reduce the symptoms of laryngitis.


This tea also has some other less known benefits, including the following:

  • Fights free radicals
  • Eliminates toxins
