Sometimes there is no denying it. You're not just run down. You're not just reacting to the weather. You're sick. Take a rest and drink a cup of hot tea. This tea. It's chock full of herbs that specialize in viral infections like the common cold and the flu and all of the icky symptoms that go along with them. Add in some honey for its addition healing benefits, but with this blend you wont' actually need a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down.
Have you ever noticed that cold weather and coughs seem to go together? I mean, I know you can get a cough any time of year, but they just seem more prevalent in the winter. I'm almost positive it has something to do with the dry, circulated, heated air, and the lack of substantial sunshine. No matter what the reason though, coughs are one winter visitor that can keep moving on down the road. To help with that my family uses this combination of herbs. They are chosen specifically for their medicinal actions against coughs and sore throats. They're even pretty tasty. Add in a little honey and a dried orange slice and you might even forget that the whole point of this tea is medicinal.
Cold weather and tea go together like...well...colds and tea. This particular blend is all about respiratory care because if there's one thing we've all whimpered out when we're feeling under the weather, it's "I just want to breath!" This blend is one of my family's answer to this dilemma. Because who doesn't love a hot cup of tea?
