Winter ... a time for hot drinks
Here are some suggestions for you to try:
Molasses tea: 1 tsp blackstrap molasses in a mug of hot water before bed makes me sleep better
Winter lemon tea: juice of half a lemon, 1 tsp honey a few mint leaves in a mug of hot water.
Lemon Balm tea: add 6 fresh leaves to mug of boiling water, stand for 5 mins, strain and add honey to taste.
Colds/Flu tea: grate a piece of ginger (skin on) and add it to a flask of boiling water. Stand for 15 minutes and strain. Add juice of 1 lemon, 1 or 2 tablespoons honey (or more to taste), pinch of cayenne pepper and a few drops of Echinacea (if you have). Keep hot in flask next to bed and sip throughout the day.
