Americans refer to all hot drinks made with herbs and seeds as “tea,” while Italians differentiate between tea and other hot drinks, which they call infusions. Hot cups of lemon peel, mint, fennel seed, and chamomile infusions are suitable for both babies and adults: lemon to relieve nasal congestion, mint and fennel for stomach upsets, and chamomile as an aid to sleep. These drinks, hot or cold with an optional touch of honey, are soothing, refreshing, and thirst quenching.
