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.
