Thomas' Honey Lemon Tea

We have made variations of this tea for years, whenever sore throats and coughs show up. Thomas wanted to share this one with you since we've had quite a cough at our house lately and he's been drinking lots of it. The honey really helps to soothe raw throats and tame coughs. It's also a comforting hot drink at any time, whether you're coughing or not, and it can also be served chilled.
