I like this steeped in my mug pouring the boiling water on top of the spices. I use the cayenne option and it is wonderfully hot spicy but almost smooth because of the raw honey. I like to add a bit more per preference. It sooths my throat. Yes! for no drugs! I would make this again.

Yesterday I woke up with a bad cold and sinus infection, and I've been trying to shake it with little to no success. I just made this recipe, and I already feel much better. And it tastes great, too. Thank you!
