This syrup has become a winter staple. It's thick to the taste, a bit sweet. It works for me every time. I appreciate the immune boost and the help to sleep when need. Good in the past when have had a cold come on. And if I feel tired but edgy, meaning, I feel so tired, run down and want to sleep but my brain is sort of stuck "on" in a buzzing mode - occasionally happens - this is the ticket for me.
