I had to have done something wrong because it was gross. I put 3 table spoons of honey like it said on the internet. It had to have been to much. How much do you put in?

Are you sure lemon tea is a good idea for a sore throat? Lemon would aggrivate a sore throat. A small amount of lemon juice in an herbal tea would be fine. Three table spoons of honey is just fine, if you like that much sweetness. I would use less than a table spoon.

 I always do hot tea, honey, lemon, and whiskey. It is the magical cure-all! I'm telling you!

I put in one tsp at a time until it is sweetened to my liking.... Did you brew lemon tea or black tea and added lemon?

 Ick to the lemon tea.  Try plain black tea like Earl Gray.  Use as much honey as you like, but if you don't like honey you won't like this elixir.

i never used tea. i just mixed lemon juice with honey and took about 3 tablespoons of that. it was delicious and also helped my sore throat almost instantly.

 throw some brandy or whiskey in there and you won't care that you have a sore throat.  I use Brandy, lemon, and garlic.  Disgusting, but it works.
