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.
