I am perfectly certain that the slight sore throat I have at the moment is not a sign that I am coming down with the horrible evil flu-thing that Daniel has had for the past three days. Well, mostly certain. *Guzzles tea, takes vitamins*

I really don't want to be getting sick, because I've got plans for tonight and tomorrow night. Tonight: Doctor Who fanclub meeting, where I'll finally get to see the first two episodes of season 4. Tomorrow night: dinner with the local extended family. If I have to miss out on either of these things due to some silly virus, I'm going to be very cross.

Chai acts as a broad-spectrum anti-viral, doesn't it?

I love redscharlach's icons.

They are made of win.

Speaking of, may I gank the "doom!" one? I can't explain why, but it's just about exactly what I've been looking for.

Sure. All of her icons are freely gankable, with credit to redscharlach.

And I know what you mean - somehow, when I saw the "doom!" one, I had to have it.

I've certainly found that a pot of tea (my preferred cuppa is lapsang souchong) is good for what ails you.
Tea with honey-and-lemon got me through a fairly horrible lurgie while in college.

Tea is a powerful cure-all. I'm convinced that once single-handedly cured a sinus infection by application of tea and Thai hot-and-sour soup.

I'm rather partial to Russian Caravan, which has a bit of lapsang souchong in it. I find the straight stuff a little overpowering. Whenever I offer my father tea, he always asks me if I have "that stuff that tastes like pine tar."

Hee.
I once holidayed in a small fishing village in the North of England where they would use some kind of tar-smelling wood to smoke the locally-caught herring, so that for the longest time I called lapsang souchong "kipper tea".
