I make this tea before bed and first thing in the morning hen I have a sore throat. It's soothing and healing. It's made with onion and garlic, but the mint leaves hide any strong flavors.

Interesting pleasant flavour. I drank this as stated and feel it helps especially at the time of drinking. It does help with healing the sore throat as well. Thanks, and I would make this again.
