    magpie diner's Note:

    I have been reading about the medicinal qualities of sage, specifically for sore throats that are plaguing my family right now. I came across this recipe on ehow.com, as well as a few other sites with virtually the same ingredients and method. I really enjoyed the flavour of this tea, it didn't feel like taking your medicine at all. I saved the leftovers and enjoyed it as cold iced tea today. Not sure it has the same medicinal benefits cold, but it sure tasted great. You can also use this warm as a gargle. As with all herbal remedies, you need to do your own homework. I know that you should avoid sage if you are pregnant or nursing, (since sage is used to help dry up milk production after weaning babies). Hopefully you've got some fresh sage and mint growing so that you can try this without having to spend a lot at the grocery store.

      I didn't have a sore throat, but we love herbal tea on cold afternoons and this sounded good. It was! I had to buy mint and sage this time of year, but going to try making this iced during the summer when we have fresh in the garden. I would cut the amount of lemon juice in half next time (personal taste). I subbed agave nectar for the honey. Made for Best of 2012 tag game.

      A funny thing occurred after I tagged this, yes I got a terrible flu like bug, so I truly benefited from this amazing tea! It truly works to alleviate the pain from a sore throat. I use sage and mint from my garden, and clover honey. Made for September Veg N Swap VIP

      I made this iced and it was wonderful! Used local honey and both pineapple sage and mint from our garden! Wonderful! The fresh leaves were rubbed first to release their oils. Reviewed for Veg Tag/September.
