In brief: Lemon tea/ Throat

Lemon tea, warm water, cool water or any other tea helps with throat clearing, presuming that it it the result of thickened mucus in that location.
The point is to stay hydrated, which helps thin mucus and keep it moving smoothly and discretely down the throat. This limits the reflex to clear your throat.
