Wellness Tea

Posted in : food, funny, humor, natural, remedies, sick, tea, Uncategorized on by : Jeanette Rueb

I drink a lot of tea.

When I’m sick, I drink enough tea in one day to fill a bathtub.

My mug is bigger than most.

That’s a standard-size mug (R2D2) compared to my mug (astronomy geek).

While homeopathic remedies have come under a lot of scrutiny, not all natural remedies are complete quackery. Serious illness should *always* be treated by a certified doctor and whatever they prescribe to you. They know what they’re doing.

For lesser illnesses, though, like the common cold, natural remedies can help ease some of the symptoms. Some of the ones I swear by happen to be teas for treating symptoms of the common cold.



I should clarify that natural remedies do not kill or prevent any illness, but they can be used to treat symptoms, making the ailment more bearable. It’s like how Ibuprofen doesn’t cure a sprained ankle, but it sure makes it feel better.

Now that I have those important disclaimers out of the way, let’s talk tea.

Throat Comfort and Breathe Deep


Yogi is one of my favorite brands of medicinal tea. It’s a little more pricey than your average tea, but it is worth it, in my opinion. The ingredients are good quality and it doesn’t taste too bad, either.

Throat Comfort and Breathe Deep are my power duo when it comes to feeling better (paired with a lot of honey, of course. What’s so special about these ingredients? Let’s look down the list of ingredients for the two teas, starting with Throat Comfort, and see what’s inside and how it helps:

So, there you have it. A rather short entry, but one packed with information. Let me know in the comments if you liked this “Herbal Update,” and I can do more of them in the future (maybe one on the healing properties of common garden plants).

Happy Spring!
