Woowww, I didn’t remember that I had tried this at all. Anyhow, I kind of enjoyed it this time. The honey flavour was pleasant and soothing. I should save the rest for the next time I have a cold.

I worked from home today because my throat was very sore and irritated, and speaking aloud was only making it worse – and I drank a ton of tea while doing so, because it was soothing on my throat.
Generally, I believe licorice root teas are what is recommended for a sore throat but I don’t enjoy the taste of licorice root at all and I personally gravitate more towards things with honey when I have a sore throat. It kind of feeling like it’s “coating” my throat, and is soothing in that way. So, one of the things I drank today was a very large mug of this tea with some added in honey. I think Ginseng may also be good for a sore throat, but I’m not totally sure. I figured it definitely couldn’t hurt though!
Because this is a bit of a sweeter tea on its own anyway, adding honey in only made it that much sweeter and a bit cloying – but since I wasn’t only drinking this cup of taste I just powered through the extra sweetness. The floral undertones, and contrast of red fruit/currant notes were a welcome break from the rich honey body notes. It was ultimately still a very nice cup overall.
I don’t know if it was placebo or not – but I did definitely feel some relief after finishing the mug!
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
