    Sue Lau's Note:

    A spicy light brew that is light on the tea and heavier on the spice, although if you like more tea you can add that. I have made this with lemon juice instead of lime juice as well. It is easy to play around with.

      Pleasant and assertive enough to actually taste it despite the way a plugged head blunts flavors. Since I haven't a sieve fine enough to strain ground coriander I made this in the coffeepot -- making a full, 12-cup pot from the ingredients listed plus and extra teabag since you can always get double the brew from tea in the coffeepot.

      This is nice. DD (toddler) is the one with the cold, she said it taste weird but I told her it's medicine and now she keeps sipping it. I found it tasted perfectly fine. I made a half batch using, spring water, 1 Lipton yellow label tea bag which I find stronger and don't like a strong tea so I left it in way less steeping time and then took out the tea bag and continued to steep the tea with the spices for the rest of the 10 minutes. I used creamed honey which I dropped in the hot tea and mixed in after I removed the tea bag. I substituted fresh lemon juice for the lime juice as I didn't have any limes on hand.
