I remember having a conversation with someone on Steepster to the effect that honeybush tea can help with coughs and other respiratory problems. I hope it’s true, because my cold just won’t bloody GO AWAY!

It does seem to soothe my irritated throat at least. Mmmm honey. :)

I’m sick too… and a headache just set in.

My experience of it was that it helped to reduce that thick, sluggish feeling in my mouth and throat that came from too much congestion…sort of like…sweeping out the cobwebs. It’s an expectorant (reputedly), so whether this will increase or decrease your cough may depend upon how mild an expectorant or how congested your pipes are, I imagine. It didn’t give me any trouble last time I was sick, though!

Profile

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
