Feeling under the weather or looking for some natural remedies to fight off cold and flu season? Here’s an easy tea recipe you can try plus 10 of my favorite tips!
If there’s one thing that I know for certain when it comes to fighting off the cold and flu naturally, it’s that tea is absolutely essential for me.
You’ll never find my pantry without an adequate supply of tea, and oddly enough, I can never drink just one bag at a time. I often mix at least 3-4 types of tea together —at a minimum — and I love concocting my own variations of tea based on different varieties and benefits that they offer.
During cold and flu season when our immune systems can become a bit weaker than other times of the year, tea makes a great part of any wellness routine to help our bodies feel better more quickly.
I also rely heavily on eating lots of fruits and vegetables, taking supplemental vitamin C, soup and stew, fresh green juices, probiotics, turmeric, ginger, fresh lemon, and fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, and kimchi.
Some of my favorite types of tea for fighting off the cold and flu season are green tea, peppermint tea, chamomile tea, lemon tea, ginger tea, or any combination of those.
And one of my absolute favorite brands of tea is Bigelow tea who has been producing tea for nearly 70 years and has a large array of products to offer. They’re also gluten-free and produced without any types of harmful chemicals.
For three generations, Bigelow has been producing classic and specialty types of tea, all of which I’ve had and bought for nearly 10 years myself ever since I started drinking tea.
I buy my Bigelow tea at Walmart regularly and they’re also available at a number of supermarkets and even at online stores wherever tea products are sold.
While we all know that tea can not cure any serious illness, I think we can all agree that a warming cup of tea can soothe the body in ways almost nothing else can when we don’t feel our best.
One of my favorite Bigelow tea products is their Lemon Ginger tea which is even infused with probiotics!
It’s great for assisting digestion if you have an upset stomach, and the probiotics and ginger in this specific tea blend are great for the body during the cold and flu season. Lemon is also great since it can help with congestion, digestion, immunity, and providing an uplifting sensation within the body when we don’t feel our best.
Here’s my favorite recipe using Bigelow Lemon Ginger tea and Bigelow Green tea that’s simple and easy to make anytime you feel your body needs a little boost to fight off the cold and flu season naturally.
