Best teas to fight cold and flu symptoms

Hello everyone!


Cold and flu season is here once again. If you are fighting a cold or the flu or searching for home remedies to help you get better, you've come to the right place!


Did you know that a simple cup of tea might be just what you need? This old home remedy has been helping people feel better for thousands of years. The hot liquid can soothe your throat and break up congestion. And, another benefit of tea is that it keeps you hydrated. When you are ill, it is recommended to increase the intake of fluids; tea is one of the healthiest drinks to include in your daily diet. Drinking more liquids will also help your body flush out toxins and other harmful bacteria and viruses. Consuming three to four cups of tea a day whenever you have a cold or flu will benefit you enormously.
