Got Sore throat ?Sip a herbal tea ,Orange Spice Herbal tea


To soothe my achy sore throat and calm the annoying cough from past few days,I've been sipping flavored herbal teas;Orange and Lemon are my personal favorites.I believe the best remedy for a common cold or cough is drinking more fluids;soups and herbal tea for instance. The following is a recipe of Orange spice herbal tea,which is light,may be not be very effective for a persistent cough.Hopefully I'll post a stronger herbal tea with fresh ginger in my next post.

(the same recipes works with lime and lemon peel.If you can't find the orange flavored tea bags,use any caffeine free herbal tea bags)
Ingredients
Caffeine free Herbal tea bags with Orange flavor,2
(Ingredients in the tea bag:dry orange peel,hibiscus flowers,cinnamon,roasted chicory root,cloves and licorice root)
Fresh orange peel ,about 4 inches[careful peel just the orange part,any white pith can make the tea bitter)
3-4 cloves
1 cinnamon stick.
2 cup of water

makes 2 cups
Method
Brew all the ingredients for about 10 minutes ;strain and sip away to relaxation.Drink a cup every 3-4 hours.

Snuggle up and Keep warm! Winter is here!

orange tea sounds good.. but my mil used to say that oranges induce soar throat .. i am not sure though. i am always ready for a cup of tea...!! :)

Thanks viki and Mahima.
Docs here recommend fresh orange juice for cold remedy coz its rich in Vit C.The herbal tea does not have any orange juice,just the zesty peel.

Ha ha ha! Thanks for your comment about the pic. *blush*
I am neither a coffee not a tea drinker, but I do drink tea occasionally when they are flavored. I had this orange tea from a SriLankan store once, and I just fell in love with it. Never found it again :(
