Lemon Sore Throat Tea

Sheryl Faulkner


My son woke up with a cough and sore throat this morning so I whipped out my friend's recipe. As I was making this tea, I tho't it would be a nice one to share. While it doesn't really have medicinal properties, it is very soothing not to mention tasty and comforting.
