Recipe Notes

WHICH TEA IS GOOD FOR COLDS ?

Personally I prefer Linden, Echinacea Tea, Rose Hip, Mint.

I'M ALLERGIC TO HONEY WHAT ELSE CAN I USE?

You can try and use Stevia or Monk Fruit.

HOW LONG DOES COLD REMEDY TEA KEEP?

It keep in a  thermos for up to 24 hours.

I DON'T LIKE SPICY FOODS IS IT NECESSARY TO USE CHILI FLAKES?

I, myself don't like spicy foods, too. I only add few chili flakes so tea is not very spicy. You can omit chili flakes if you think it would bee too much for you or if you are allergic to spicy foods.
