"We have all had those days when we have a cold and can't kick its butt. Where our throat is achy and it hurts to swallow. This is a recipe I have developed in the last couple of days. I think I now have the perfect balance of home-remedy qualities and flavor. The honey coats your throat and helps to sooth it. The citrus actually reduces the swelling and adds a great deal of flavor. For all of you who are suffering with a sore throat, get well soon. I hope you like it."

(1/4-inch-thick) lemon slices
loose-leaf jasmine green tea
honey, or to taste
What an excellent tea, I even had some fresh jasmine flowers on my vine to add in.
Update: The first time I tried this tea I was feeling fine, now I am sick with a bad head cold and scratchy throat, this tea has been a lifesaver for me. I also squeezed in some fresh oranges for some more vitamin C.
Great with orange pekoe tea, too. I added extra lemon and a little extra locally-produced honey. Very comforting.
Very nice soothing tea. Like another reviewer I added a little extra honey.. A keeper for me.
