Our traditional herbal anti-viral tea COLD & FLU AID can help your body fight the good fight to get you back on your feet!
Aside from the current widespread disease, it’s the season for colds, flu, and other bugs that bring us down in the chillier months. You know the cold season drill: No matter what we do, someone in the family ends up with the sniffles, cold, or the flu. There's also that nagging worry that a simple cold will turn into something worse.
Although our COLD & FLU tea remedies the existing cold and flu symptoms such as sore throat, cough, runny nose, and nasal congestion, you shouldn't wait for the illness to come! We highly recommend our herbal infusion as a preventive method to help your body resist infection, curb the sniffles, and boost the immune system.
HOW DOES IT TASTE
Our tea has a sweet flavor with a pleasant hint of bitterness and a soothing scent. It tastes especially good with a natural sweetener, like honey. Besides, stirring a bit of honey into your tea may help soothe pain and soreness, and suppress a cough. The longer the tea steeps, the stronger it will taste. You may also add a cinnamon stick for flavor and to boost the tea's anti-inflammatory properties.
HOW TO USE
If you already feeling under the weather: make a stronger (2 tsp. per cup) brew and during 3-5 mugs a day (hot, adding honey is a good idea).
For cold and flu prevention: 1 mug a day will do. But feel free to drink as much as you like!
*** We do NOT recommend using the microwave to warm the tea up. Simmering in the pot is OK, or you may brew a stronger batch (double the tea per the same amount of water), keep in the fridge, and mix it 50/50 with the hot water when you are ready for a hot cuppa.
