1. Throat Coat – Traditional Medicinal*
This tea is one of my favorites for when I have a cold! I’m not a huge fan of the taste, but I love how it soothes my throat. There is no cough drop or throat lozenge that works like this tea does. It’s magic, and I love it.
2. Breathe Easy – Traditional Medicinal*
I just recently tried this tea and it works great. I wasn’t super congested, but it really did help! I plan on keeping this on hand for when I really need it and can put it to the test. I would recommend this for the small sniffles, and I will have to put it to the test when a real cold hits.
3. Chamomile Tea – Harney and Sons*
I love this tea. I have loved chamomile for years, and I often drink it before bed. This tea is excellent for helping you relax and get ready for bed. When I am sick, there is nothing that I want more than to be able to fall asleep fast and have a good night’s sleep. This tea always helps with that
4. Sleepytime Tea – Celestial Seasonings*
Speaking of a good night’s sleep, this tea is another one that I love to drink before bed. Like I said before, there is nothing better than a good night’s sleep when trying to recover quickly from a cold or the flu. I tend to drink this tea when I want something a little more flavorful than chamomile.
5. Lemon and Ginger – Twining’s*
This tea is perfect for when your stomach is a little sour. I wouldn’t recommend drinking tea when you have a stomach virus or ‘stomach flu.’ However, when your stomach is a little off or when your stomach is bothered by all the mucus you’ve accidentally been ingesting this is a great fix.
6. Peppermint Tea – Harney and Sons*
This is another perfect tea for when your stomach feels a little off. I usually prefer this tea over the lemon and ginger, but I do like them both. Since I tend to get sick during the winter, the peppermint still makes me feel like I’m a part of the holiday season even though I probably feel awful.
