Tea for those sniffles and lurgies roaming about
I would be interested to know what tea you all like to drink when you are feeling under the weather?
If you have any top tips, please share with us all :-)
Depends on the symptoms, but I tend to prefer puerh for the warmth effects.
Ginger-based herbals, always. Or just straight up dried ginger. Harney and Sons has a great ginger blend. Always with honey.
Clari-Tea from whispering pines tea co always does the trick for me. If I need a bit more of a boost, then I resort to matcha.
Not so easy to find but benifuuki cultivar tea. It’s scientifically proven.

This last week when I was under the weather it was pointless drinking good tea because I could hardly taste anything, so I pulled out the cheap “bought at a Chinese supermarket for emergencies like this” shou I have in.
Worked like a charm! :)
I drink Bronchial Tea by Flora. It really does work and it’s decent tasting too. It helps clear up all the mucus on the lungs. Another of my favs is just plain peppermint tea. It doesn’t help like the Bronchial Tea but it’s always pleasant to drink sick or not.
I like Rishi’s Ginger Tumeric when I’m stuffed up. Traditional Medicines has Throat Coat which is great for a sore throat. It has licorice root, slippery elm bark, marshmallow and other things that are supposed to make your throat feel better.
