Thyme for French Healing Tea!

Thyme for French Healing Tea! created by Calee

I hear that the French sip this tea for pure pleasure, but it is also soothingly healing for sore throats, upper respiratory troubles, and tummy bugs. This recipe calls for only one herbal ingredient, and you probably have it in your kitchen pantry. As you sip your drink, take a moment to think of cozy French farmhouses surrounded by fields just beginning to thaw after the long cold winter. Oh, for the simple life..... French Tart, I am thinking of you! Adapted from Cait Johnson, Assistant Producer, Care2 Healthy Living Channels.

    I love thyme tea & it never occurred to me that I could make my own! This was excellent! I added 6 sprigs to my cup & let it sit for 5 min. I used the optional lemon. I love thyme! So soothing. It’s my favorite herb. Thanks!

    Very soothing and comforting. I used fresh thyme and about 1/2 t of honey. I was hoping it would help with my cough. It calmed it a bit but it really relaxed me and that was a relief too. Thanks for sharing.

    This is a great tea for when you really need to cure a sore throat. Loved how easy and quick it was to prepare and how soothing it felt. I made it using dried herbs and the flavour was very strong, but thats ok. Ill definitely try it with fresh thyme as well, though just to see which one I like more.<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing, Sharon!<br/>Made and reviewed for the NA/ME Veggie Forum Sund and Spice Event February 2013.

    Really soothing. Though I don't have an exceptionally bad cold I liked this a lot as did DD (toddler) with creamed honey. I will make this again weather sick or not.
