Soothing drink for cold

Monday, February 11, 2019

Whenever we are down with cough, sore throat, and congestion, my dad often reminded us to consume honey and lemon to soothe the pain. My friend, Carolina advised us to drink Chrysanthemum Tea as natural coolant while another friend suggested ginger drink and lo han kuo drink. I found all of the ingredients in the Asian Supermarket except for the raw honey, which I either buy at Costco of the farmer's market.  Here is my go to drink recipe to combat cold:

Our family friends the Rediawan also shared their family soothing drink: The Herbal Tea picture below  {I don't know what the English name. It also can be found at Asian Market}
