Cold and Flu Time Tea
tea is a delicious traditional blend of soothing and balancing herbs. A
popular formulation without the use of Ma Huang (ephedra), this blend was
traditionally used for temporary relief of a wide range of minor discomforts
associated with the cold and flu season, including congestion, stuffy nose,
sore throat, coughing, body- and head-aches, and stomach upsets.
Mulberry, fragrant angelica and perilla were used to help relieve
congestion. Lycium, mulberry and platycodon were used to help support
healthy lung function and to help relieve coughing. Honeysuckle, pueraria,
siler and Chinese mint were used to help support throat health, and to help
relieve temporary minor throat discomfort, headaches and body aches.
Honeysuckle, dandelion, mahonia and licorice are considered cooling and were
used to help clear away toxins. Ginger was used to help relieve stomach
upsets, discomfort and chills. Astragalus was used to help maintain the
healthy function of the immune system and to help promote healthy
added benefits, use Triple Leaf Ginger Tea during the cold & flu season.
