Mother was right

about lemon tea. When I had a cold as a child, she made fresh lemon tea that was always served in a large coffee pot that was put on the hearth to keep warm.

I developed a sore throat three days after MWNN arrived home, bringing with him a dose of the nasties.

Good thing I'd already had the flu jab and stocked up on lemon tea - this one from Dr Stuart's range of herbal and fruit tea. Its main ingredients are elderflower ( a natural immune system booster) and lemons (used by generations of mothers to ease winter cold and flu symptoms).


Elder flowers 31%, lemongrass 25%, rosehip 24%, lemonpeels 10%, lemon balm 5%, natural lemon flavour.
