I make this tea before bed and first thing in the morning hen I have a sore throat. It's soothing and healing. It's made with onion and garlic, but the mint leaves hide any strong flavors.


  1. Place all the ingredients except the honey in a small pot.
  2. Add about 1 1/2 to 2 cups water and bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. When it comes to a rolling boil, turn off heat and cover.
  4. Let it infuse for 5-10 minutes.
  5. Serve and sweeten with honey to taste.

Thank you for this recipe I had a very bad sore throat and cough with this tea for 3 days 2 times a day I don't have to take any medicine. Home remedies from old cultures help, really help. Thank you.

Interesting pleasant flavour. I drank this as stated and feel it helps especially at the time of drinking. It does help with healing the sore throat as well. Thanks, and I would make this again.
