 Honey Citron Tea Recipe

Honey Citron Tea Recipe

Ok, I have to let you know before you read this post, I have never heard of this tea. I am not kidding yall, it’s so new to me! And building this site up with new teas to try to make, I learn something too! So read and enjoy making this Honey Citron Tea Recipe

Korean Citron Yuzu Tea is an herbal or tisane made with citrus fruit. It contains no caffeine and it’s perfect for when if you’re looking for a little cold relief or just a nice hot beverage to warm up during the cold times where you are, I love my teas hot but I know some who like their teas cold (iced) and I think you’ll like this recipe just as much as I do. Enjoy Honey Citron Tea Recipe


Citron Tea or yujacha is a very popular and traditional Korean cold remedy that is actually NOT a tea — it’s a tisane or an herbal tea. It’s made from the citrus fruit yuzu and it’s tea in the loosest sense of the word in that it’s something you can stir into hot water and drink.

For it to be real tea, it has to come from a Camellia Sinensis plant and no ingredient in this beverage does.

But wait, what does it taste like? Yuzu tastes like a mix of lemon, orange, and grapefruit all in one, which makes Honey Citron Tea Recipe such a great one to try.


I don’t know anyone that makes citron tea from scratch and I can see why — tracking down the yuzu is not easy to find. But if you have ever had the citron tea from the jar, the ingredient list made me want to try making my own tea and I will do another post kinda like an update on what this is tea is like but here is the post to make it. Does Honey Citron Tea Recipe sound fun? Keep reading to find out.

It’s not something you can make at home to save money, that’s for sure, Amazon has lots of different jars, tins of this great tea. I do love my tea in bags so it’s easier to just throw them into my compost pail and I know others who like loose tea in a tea infuser, but I am starting that one out about a week ago.

But whatever kind of way you like your tea works for me! I have no objections to the way you like tea! 🙂

Recipe for Honey Citron Tea


    • Citrus fruit yuzu (Yuja in Korean)
      Yuzu isn’t so easy to find.
    • Sugar and honey to sweeten.
    • White vinegar to rinse the yuzu to make sure it was super clean.
    • Chef’s knife, cutting board, and a bowl.
    • Weck jars
    • To store the tea in the refrigerator.
    • Gooseneck electric kettle
      A must for tea drinkers.
    • Glass mug (see-through works best I love how you can see all the yuzu bits flying around with this mug).


Honey Citron Tea Recipe itself is SUPER simple and comes together in a few minutes of your time (It will be worth your time by the way).

No need to preheat an oven or get out a saucepan for the stove. It’s all about cutting (the yuzu into thin slices) and mixing (the sugar, honey, and sliced yuzu). That’s it.

There’s a ton of hard, round seeds in the yuzu so make sure you throw all those out.

You can make citron tea by using all sugar or all honey but I found making it with all honey completely masked the yuzu flavor so I like to add mostly sugar instead of with a little bit of honey added for flavor and sweetness.

It looks like jam or preserves and you just need a tablespoon or two into a cup of hot water and you’re good to go. Citron tea doesn’t have any caffeine so it won’t keep you up.

What do you do with the yuzu bits floating around? You eat it! It packs a nice vitamin C punch. It’s a drink you can chew.

The citron tea will last in an airtight container (I love my handy Mason Jars) in the refrigerator for 1-2 months.

Now I Am sure your wondering, does this tea have caffeine? Well, I have the answer in one word! No, It doesn’t have any caffeine in it.
