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.
This tea was easy to make with ingredients I grow in the garden and typically have on hand. I thought the amount of sage gave it a bit of medicinal taste. However, I felt a little under the weather when I made it and it really was soothing. Made for ZWT 8.
This was really awesome and nice way to end the day. I don't have a sore throat, but I do love mint tea and using fresh leaves to make tea! Thanks for posting this recipe!
