Kim’s “Cold and Flu” Tea

When feeling under the weather, enjoy this tea several times a day.

My friend, Kim, made this tea for me last year when I was feeling a little under the weather. Since then I have made it for myself and Alex several times and I really think it works! It will probably not cure your illness, but I strongly believe it has decreased the length and severity of our colds. It is also soothing on a sore throat and tastes great! Bonus when you are sick!

Thyme has high levels of anti-microbial compounds and can act as an expectorant, helping with coughs and sneezes. Local honey also has anti-microbial properties and feels good on a sore throat. Lemon juice provides a beneficial dose of Vitamin C, which has proven to boost the immune system.

Hope you feel better!
