Magic Manuka Honey and Thyme Sore Throat Buster

This recipe is so easy it is truly magic. The antibacterial and soothing properties of Taylor Pass Manuka Honey and fresh thyme leaves are a wicked combo for any scratchy throat. And most importantly, it is so yummy — floral & sweet and an all around favourite with the kids (especially when honey and lemon can be too sour for some young taste buds).

  • Add 3-4 cups of water in a saucepan with a generous bunch of fresh thyme (~60-80g).
  • Boil for 5+ minutes to infuse the thyme.
  • Turn off the heat and let it cool slightly to a drinking temperature (this protects the magic active properties in the honey).
  • Stir in 2 big tablespoons of a high UMF Taylor Pass Manuka Honey
  • Strain and serve.

Enjoy it hot or chill in the fridge for a refreshing drink. Suitable for kids aged 1 and over.

Why is Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) important?

  • The higher the UMF, the higher the active levels of our magical native Manuka
  • Manuka is the key ingredient which delivers antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits
  • Manuka has traditionally been used for wound healing, sore throats, prevention of tooth decay and even improving digestive issues
  • UMF is an independent accreditation which authenticates that this is genuine, quality manuka from New Zealand. This is different to MGO, so read your label.
Taylor Pass Honey is produced in the South Island of New Zealand, under the watchful eyes of some very passionate beekeepers. Taylor Pass is one of the few honey companies that cares for the hives, collects, processes and packs all of the honey themselves in New Zealand, and can even trace each jar back to its original hive.
