Serve to any Man, Hobbit, or Dwarf suffering from congestion, sore throat, dry cough or Morgul blade stab wounds.
Place Ginger, Mint and Garlic (peeled, but not crushed!) in a cheesecloth and tie off. Add to boiling water and cook for 5-7 min. Turn off heat and add lemon juice. Remove spices and transfer to an insulated tea pot. Into each cup, add a tsp. of honey (or to taste), and Echinacea extract according to the bottle’s instructions.
