Sweet Dreams Tea

I love hot toddies!  They make me so happy.  When I am sick I always have a hot toddy.  I don’t know how long ago I found these recipes, but it was a few years ago and ever since whenever I am sick I look at my hot toddy recipes and find one that will soothe my pains.

This one is good for respiratory problems, colds, the flu, and hay fever.  It fights mucus production and boost your immunity.  How can you go wrong?

And that little yellow tea pot is my favorite thing in my kitchen!  I love tea and it is so bright and happy!  It makes the perfect amount of tea for my travel mug too.  It has helped me through many a cold winter, and even though this one is not particularly cold, I am still drinking tea all the time.
