It’s been a crazy cold & flu season! I work with Chinese Medicine and specialize in the treatment of colds/flus. I use Yin Chiao at the first sign of a cold or for preventative measures and it works most of the time to keep a cold at bay so I don’t get it full-on. Its a life saver.

I also make a ginger brew when I’ve got a cold or flu and it helps to flush out the cold, with sore throat, fever, energy. It makes a loose syrup that I mix with water and honey to make a concoction. You can play with the amount of ingredients depending on your preference.

Ingredients: grated ginger, lemon, honey, water, minced garlic, turmeric, a pinch of cayenne.

Take good care. :)

This isn’t tea related but it keeps me healthy. I take high quality probiotics, eat fermented foods, and stay away from sugar. I’ve read that 70-80% of your immune system is in your gut so its important to keep the good bacteria active. Using that logic, maybe puerh would be helpful.
