He would make it with Tang, Lemonade, Cinnamon, and enough sugar to drive a preschool teacher to the brink. It tasted good. . . but it was far from good for you.
A few weeks ago he was fighting a cold and said he wished he had the stuff to make some Russian Tea. He wanted a warm drink, but not Hot Cocoa. He doesn't like any of the 40 or so varieties of herbal tea I keep in the house. (That is a product of living in Russia. After choking down countless cups of bad herbal tea, his brain has decided they are all bad.)
As I was considering which essential oils I should use to help him fight off what ever bug had invaded his body, the though occurred to me that I could make a HEALTHY version of the Russian Tea for him, that would also help boost his immune system.
And so the "Get Well Soon Tea" was born in our kitchen. . .
Lemon to replace the lemonade, Wild Orange to replace Tang, On Guard to replace the cinnamon, and honey to replace the sugar.
It took a bit of tinkering, but I finally came up with a delicious and comforting "tea."
