Soothing drinks for cold

It seems like the flu season is very bad this year; so many people are down with cold or flu. When we were down with cough, sore throat, and congestion last month, my dad reminded us to drink honey lemon drink to soothe the pain. My friend, Carolina advised us to drink Chrysanthemum Tea as natural coolant so I combined them all together:

Honey Lemon Chrysanthemum Drink
Ingredients: Hot water {about 6 cups}, Honey {as prefer}, 3 lemon,
1/4 cup of dried Chrysanthemum Flowers {found at Asian Supermarket}

Directions: Squeeze the juice from the lemon

Add hot water, honey, and chrysanthemum flowers, then mix them  all together.
Put strainer on the top of your glass; strain and enjoy:

Our friends the Rediawan also shared their family soothing drink: The Herbal Tea shown below  {I don't know what the English name. It also can be found at Asian Market}
Cheers!
