Phlegm Tea* (*tea does not contain actual phlegm)

So, you forgot to take your Echinacea with Osha, you ran out of vitamin C and your co workers keep coming into work sick and doped up on symptom masking cold medicine.  No wonder you’re not feeling well.  If you’ve got a cough, congestion or any other phlegm related symptom this tea can help.  And it’s never too late to start taking immune boosters like zinc and FIRE CIDER!!!

Thyme, Ginger and Licorice, a powerful cold and flu remedy.

This tea is really easy to make and take.  The recipe for this tea is a ratio of water to herbs so you can make a lot or a little.  When someone is sick we put a soup pot on the stove and keep it going all day.  A cup of tea every couple of hours can make a huge difference in how you feel.

For every 4 cups of water use 3 Tablespoons of ground Ginger or fresh if you’ve got it, 1/3 cup of Licorice root and 1/3 cup of Thyme.  Put a lid on it, bring to a boil and then turn the heat off and let it sit, covered, for 15 minutes.  Strain out a cup at a time and drink it hot.  You can add honey to sweeten and it will also help soothe your sore throat and boost your immune system.
