Ahhh-chooo! Yep, that is the sound of a darn cold (or worse) that always seems to happen right about now! Shout out to Bigelow for providing some tea relief! When feeling crappy, there seems to be nothing that can help as much as sipping (or chugging if things are really bad) a steaming mug of some of the best flavors of tea on the face of the earth. Hot tea just has a way of helping you out when you are down, right? We’re tea fans 100%, but we especially love how a hot mug rocks during cold and flu season…here are a few more tea tips to think about before, during and after this nasty cold season:
- Hot tea may soothe a sore throat and for sure can warm you up when you’re feeling achy and chilly. And check out the Bigelow teas with ginger as an ingredient, such as Lemon Ginger Herbal tea. The spicy-sweetness is terrific for feeling warm fast and history proves that ginger was used over 3000 years ago for medicinal purposes so go for it even if you don’t have a cold!
- A cup of tea a day keeps the doctor away? Maybe just maybe! Black tea might help your body defend bacteria and viruses, according to research from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard University. Drink up and drink often for the most benefits (you didn’t have to tell us that advice twice!)
- We love how different flavors help us in different ways! We’re all about lemon-y tastes such as Benefits Lemon and Echinacea Herbal Tea when our throat hurts, and Cozy Chamomile® Herbal Tea for helping us to chill out. Awesome!!
