Thank you Sharon. This is hitting the spot. Opening up my sinuses, settling my belly. I did add infused honey. Made for Feb Sun and Spice

I'm not sick (knock on wood) but am really, really TIRED so I made this up to relax. It worked...I'm off to bed now. Made for Cooking with an Asian Accent photo event 3/09. I did add sugar. :) Thank you!

So far, I have been fortunate not to become ill this winter, so I cannot speak to the efficacy of this treatment. I tried it because I tend to have a lot of sinus drainage; at the end of the day I do not feel clogged up. I drank this straight (that is, without sugar), and it tasted somewhat bitter. I am so accustomed to adding sugar to my tea, even though my doctor swears I must lay off! Thanks for posting this recipe, Sharon, I'll try it again if I come down with a cold. Made for Photo Tag.
