Feel-Better Mint Herbal Tea

Whether it’s major allergies or the first cold of the season is still to be determined, but I can say with certainty that I’ve felt better other days of my life than I do today.  So, I’m sharing and sipping my Feel Better Mint Herbal Tea.  I hope that the school-year sickies haven’t visited your house yet and that when they do you have some mint herbal tea kicking around to combat the stuffy head.  You will also need some honey (preferably in a darling pot, because that will make anyone feel just the tiniest bit better) and a lemon.  This is great before bed to ease stuffiness and supress a cough.  Did you know that scientists have actually studied the effectiveness of honey as a cough suppressant for people ages one and up?
