No matter what mood you’re in, it’s always time for tea. The health benefits that come with drinking tea are endless — whether it be for burning fat, waking us up, or helping us focus. Now that cold and flu season is on the horizon, it’s important to know which teas can help settle a nasty winter cold.
Take a look at three of the top teas we suggest for when you’re feeling under the weather.
As a member or the mint family, this tea has the ability to soothe stomach aches and help with cramps. Catnip is also said to have a sedative effect after drinking it — therefore, if you’re feeling sick and you drink it right before bed, you won’t be tossing and turning all night. It will knock you right out.
The taste and smell of licorice tea will soothe your senses, but it is also a tonic for the adrenals, allowing it to produce a healthy increase in energy. Feeling sluggish and under the weather? Sip on some licorice tea.
According to Matcha Source (or the holy grail of everything matcha), this tea’s countless health benefits will help a cold in many ways. Drinking this will boost your metabolism, lower cholesterol, relax your body, and enhance your mood. Sounds like a suitable way to cure a cold if you ask us.
