Sore Throat? Cold? Try mint tea!

I always try and keep a pot of mint growing in the house. On my kitchen window sill now is a Herbs in a can  of mint. My son bought me it about 2 weeks ago and they are just sprouting. So cute. But, fresh mint is so good for making a tea with that helps with colds and flu. I add real honey to it and it really soothes a sore throat.
Easy to make:
Put a couple of sprigs of the mint into a teapot and pour in a couple of cups of boiling water. Cover it and let it infuse for a few minutes. Strain it and drink! Add the honey to it right before you drink it.
Also is good for indigestion, nausea, headaches.
If you have no fresh mint you can use dried. Use a teaspoonful per cup.
