add hot water and steep.

pour off a cup and toss in a dollop of honey.

drink down and pray that it will banish the demons who have stolen your voice and replaced it with a horrible raspy cough.

Oh dear. I hope you'll be back to drinking wine soon...on the other hand, maybe wine is just what you need to power through it.

I'll be trying this today, since I'm sounding a bit like Peppermint Patty myself. Or Brenda Vaccarro. Or Yosemite Sam when Joe-Henry ignores me. The little varmint. Excellent recipe, my friend. If you need a literary Chicken Soup (without resortiing to those dreadful "Chicken Soup...." books), check out Laurie Colwin's "Homecooking" and "More Homecooking". A good cuddle up and some of that yummy tea, you'll be right as rain in no time.
