My son actually gave me a cup of this mint tea when I was coughing and miserable with a cold. It is soothing and stopped my coughing about as effectively as a cough drop plus it adds fluids to help the cold move on out!
I’ve been a tea drinker since I was about seven years old. My grandmother would fix a cup of tetley tea for me and a slice of cinnamon toast whenever I was upset or sad. She loved tea and rarely drank anything else
