    This is good. DD drank her cup too and is asking for more. I just felt it was almost 5 stars but not quite so I couldn't rate it so. I sweetened ours with honey to be healthier. Made for Veggie Swap 31 ~ February 2011.

    I loved this! I've been looking for a caffeine-free alternative to my usual cuppa char, but I don't like herbal teas or decaffeinated tea. This was perfect--flavorful, yet not overpowering, and so warm and soothing. I brought it to a simmer, then moved it to my warming burner on high (which is much lower than low on a regular burner). It smelled wonderful while it was heating--like a lemon drop! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, Chef Kate! Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag game.

    Simple and Soothing. I made 1 serving. I drank it warm and unsweetened with my tea straw. I'll be making this again. Made for the Zaar Stars tag game.

    This tasted really good and was just right for my sore throat and cold. I did take Annacia's suggestion and reduced the amount of lemon to 2 and it was just right for me. Thanks for sharing!
