Herbal remedies

Suffering from a sore throat or a cough is never fun. But here at TeaSwan, we have an exquisite selection of only the best natural teas to help you overcome these seasonal ailments. From herbal tea to tea blends and everything in between, TeaSwan has the right beverage for you.

Keep it hot- while an iced or cold tea may sound beneficial to soothe a burning throat, the opposite is what your body needs. Opt for hot and warm drinks when you have a sore throat or cough.

Add some lemon- While all of Tea Swan's teas are exquisite and beneficial on their own, a little bit of lemon, orange or citrus flavours are the best way to beat a cold. Our tea list has some tea leaves that synergize with lemon very well. 

Honeyed words- along with lemon, honey is another great accoutrement to a cold-combatting beverage. Feel free to add a teaspoon of honey to our fantastic teas!

Doctor's orders- Tea is an excellent companion for when you have a cough or cold, but also always see a doctor and listen to their advice and directives when you are sick. Tea can help soothe and improve ailments, but it is not the same as medicine! Without further ado, here is our selection of choice teas courtesy of TeaSwan that can help soothe that sore throat or cough. Following teas are the answer of what tea is best for a cold
