I put the water on to boil. Once the water came to a boil I added the dried peppermint and let it steep for about 12 minutes. The house was smelling amazing to me at this point because of the peppermint. I shut off the heat and allowed it to cool for about 15 minutes. At this point, I strained the herbs out of the water. I rinsed my pan that I used to get all the loose herb out of the pan. I added the peppermint tea back to the pan and turned the heat back on. I added the honey and allowed it to gently heat and combine. Once combined, I turned off the heat and allowed it to cool for about 15 minutes. I then poured it into a jar. Once it cools fully I will try it to see how it tastes and how it works. Ok, I've been using this for two days now and I have to say that the taste isn't great, but it does seem to help with the cough and with the raw throat from the cough.

Making this one for me is easy. I drink tea all the time and I use loose herbs to make it. I had to get the Echinacea for this one, but I got to make it today. I put the water on to boil. Once it was boiling I added my herb and let it steep for about 7 minutes. I usually try to go longer, but I wanted to try this one so I didn't go as long as I normally do. After I let the herbs steep, I had to strain them out of the water. I don't know how to explain the taste of it but it wasn't unpleasant. Kind of woody I guess.
