It’s a classic home remedy I prefer overstore-brought cold medicines. The astringent lemon juice helpsreduce mucus, the honey soothes a sore throat and the spiciness ofthe ginger acts as a decongestant. Easily increase the ingredients tomake a larger pot of tea when everyone in your household is notfeeling well or to store the excess in the refrigerator and reheat asneeded.
