It works. I don’t love these flavors unless I have a sore throat, but it’ll fix you up good.

I wouldn’t drink this tea everyday, but when you have a terrible sore throat it is life saver. Be sure to follow the directions on the back and use some honey to increase the benefits. Using honey also made the taste easier to transition to, but now that I know what to expect, I wouldn’t feel like I absolutely had to use honey.
I bought this on a recommendation, because normally I use Echinacea Elder or Echinacea Plus and I wan’t something specifically for sore throats, not colds/respiratory issues, but ugh. Just ugh. I don’t mind a little bit of licorice in herbal teas (Pukka’s a good example), but this just tastes disgustingly of licorice. Luckily I do know people who like licorice, so I can offer it to them if ever they need it, but right now it’s just sitting in my cupboard collecting dust.
Taste-wise, this isn’t my favorite tea. I’m not a huge fan of licorice or fennel.
But this tea really helps out my throat. I don’t know what’s in it that makes your throat feel actually coated and soothed, but it’s amazing. I add in agave to coat it even more. This tea is always in my cupboard, for myself and for friends who get the wintertime sore throat.
Ah Throat Coat. I’ve been drinking this stuff since I was a kid, and being prone to sore throats, I think it’s pure magic. It feels as though it has an herbal anesthetic quality, and it’s pleasantly thick and warm going down- especially with good honey. I love the flavor, and am usually in danger of running out before I’m even sick. Lots of good memories with this great tea.
