Herbal teas can be a useful way to soothe some of the symptoms of colds, flu and sore throats.
The cinnamon in this tea has a warming effect, plus it aids digestion. Thyme is anti-microbal and is said to strengthen the immune system thereby helping to prevent recurring infections.
I make this using common thyme, but if you have other varieties use them.
Cinnamon Thyme Sore Throat Tea
Place 2 teaspoons of dried thyme and one cinnamon stick into a small teapot. Pour 2 cups of boiling water into the pot to cover the herbs. Allow to steep for 6-8 minutes (you can adjust the steeping time depending on how strong you like your tea).
Pour into a tea cup or mug through a strainer. Sweeten to taste with honey.
Makes 2 cups.
Drinking two or 3 cups a day may help to relieve cold symptoms
