Not luke warm, you say? No? Oh so you're drinking scolding hot water. Oh, I didn't realize. That's cool. So not luke warm then...
Regardless, Tea is awful. I'm currently forcing myself to drink it because I have a very important meeting tomorrow and I'm nursing a horrific cough and cold. I don't want to make an impression as "the girl with that cough". Been there, done that. On any other day, you'd be hard pressed to find me with such a revolting potable like Tea. I keep it real with a cappuccino which has consistency and taste. I know, I know, old fashioned.
I asked some friends for advice on getting rid of a cough quickly. Here's one of their answers...
ME: I have an important meeting tmrw at 11am and have this awful cough. Any advice?
CHAIMS: Put a pencil in your mouth and drink a glass of water upside down.
ME: You're kidding, right?
Based on that response, I must ask - nay, BEG of you to email me tips on getting rid of a bad cough in under 24 hours or by the time you read this, maybe 12. Tips can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will receive a trip for 2 (one of those people being myself) to my favourite restaurant. They will have to pay for themselves.
