Attention those with sore throats & sniffles:
Drinking this tea will put your sore throat at ease.
Inspired by the Coldbuster (or Sick Tea) at Starbucks that my boyfriend recently brought home for me while I was sick as a dog in bed. He then did some homework and purchased ingredients to make this tea at home.
- 1 bag of peach tea
- 1 bag of mint tea
- 1 cup of boiling water
- 1 cup of heated lemonade
- 1 tablespoon of honey
1. Boil water in tea kettle
2. Heat lemonade on stove or microwave for 1.5 minutes. Do not let lemonade boil.
3. Pour 1 cup of each liquid into cup, followed by the honey.
4. Place each tea bag into cup, let steep for 2-3 minutes.
The lemonade and peach provide a sweetness while the mint adds a cooling effect. The hot liquid and honey provides relief for a sore throat.
