When I was little and had a cold or was complaining about my sore throat my mother used to serve me tea made from our garden mint. As I grew older I felt like it didn’t really make that much of a difference, so I put both honey and cough drops in, just to see if it got better, and it did. This is the only thing I drink when I suffer from a sore throat or a cold. (Well.. Except for coffee, of course) It’s both soothing and fresh and hot. I love it.
I use the Vicks Honey Fresh cough drops and haven’t really tried anything else since I thought it worked so well with both the mint and the honey, but I guess you could use pretty much anything that will ‘melt’ in the hot water. Which is.. everything edible.
This drink has been my savior so many times. If you decide to try it out, please let me know what you thought of it!
