Friends and customers often ask us for a tea recommendation to help them feel better when they're sick with a cold. In our opinion, any warm tea is soothing to your throat, especially with a little honey added!
Here are some blends you can purchase in the shop and online which we recommend for colds (note that Moroccan Mint is the only one with "true tea" in it, while the others are non-tea herbals).
Moroccan Mint: try this fragrant mix of peppermint, spearmint and gunpowder green tea to help clear your sinuses.
Chocolate Honeybush: the honeybush herb has pinotol (an expectorant), and because honeybush is caffeine free, it makes a nice evening beverage.
Rooibos: an herb with vitamin C, other vitamins, and antioxidants plus no caffeine. Green rooibos is higher in anti-oxidants, minerals and nutrients than traditional red rooibos.
- Herbal Ginger: green rooibos balances out the ginger root
- Lovely Lemon: green rooibos with lots of lemon, ginger and cinnamon.
- Montana Gold: red rooibos with cinnamon, orange peel and clove
- Chocolate-Orange Rooibos: red rooibos with chocolate chips, orange peel, flavoring and orange blossoms.
The next time you have a cold, remember to make yourself a soothing cup of tea!
