Garlic is the worse vegetable dish for me. It can make any dish a lot better but eating a piece of it makes me about to vomit. The taste is plain bad.
Do you hate garlic too? What if this bad tasting garlic is a cough cure. It is almost always available and could be an immediate remedy. In case any other cure is not available on hand, would you take garlic to ease your cough?
I have no cough but I wanted to find out if I can take garlic as tea. Eating it raw is a no no for me. A tea should be fine.
I got one garlic clove. Sliced it and boiled in 3/4 glass of water for ten minutes. Let stood for two minutes and drank. The tea version is not as bad as pure garlic glove. I could drink it with ease.
I thought garlic and ginger tea would be more palatable. I got another garlic glove and a piece of garlic. Sliced them both and boiled in 3/4 glass of water for 10 minutes. As I thought the mixture has a more pleasant taste and aroma. The garlic presence was masked by ginger. The soothing effect is more intense too.
Adding sugar to masked garlic is an option but not a good idea. Sugar tend to cause irritation resulting to coughing.
