Random Food Fridays - The Sore Throat Action Plan

Meyer Lemons, Ginger, Licorice Mint Tea

There's been a pretty bad cold going around these parts. Luckily, I'm well past it and this tea helped me get through it. It is simple, soothing and effective. If you have never had licorice in tea, it is delicious. It adds a natural sweetness without sugar. 

For one pot of tea:

1/4 of a lemon
6 slices fresh ginger
1 Licorice Mint tea bag

Squeeze the lemon juice into the tea pot, then drop in the whole thing. Add remaining ingredients and cover with boiling water. Allow to steep for at least 5 minutes, but 15 minutes is better. Drink up and get some rest!
