None: That's a common remedy people use for sore throat. The only problem would be if you have diabetes and you use too much honey, if the water is too hot and you are not careful or you have sensitivity to citrus as in stomach acid. Otherwise, hmm, i think it tastes good, along with some tea.

It feels good ..: On the premise that anything that makes you feel good is good for your health, hot water with honey and lemon fits the bill. But it probably really is good for you: it helps keep your bowels regular, may aid in digestion, enhances your mood and may freshen your breath. The steam heat may also clear your sinuses. Most people think morning is best. Most important: there's no danger/risk. Enjoy!
