"This recipe was handed down from a singer who swears she has stopped numerous sore throats by drinking this tea regularly upon any hint of a cold," says Brenda Roes of Glendale, California. "I've since added to it, and it has helped me combat the winter nasties. It tastes horrible."
3 cups water
10 teaspoons cayenne pepper
3 cloves crushed garlic
3 tablespoons honey
3 teaspoons fresh ginger, finely chopped
Brew all the ingredients together. Squeeze the juice from the lemons, but leave the rinds floating in the tea. While simmering, put your face directly over the steam and inhale. Sip the tea and make a horrible face. Repeat as often as necessary.
