Sore throat tea
And, I’m not a good sick person. You know how some women complain about their husbands that the men are horrible sick people? Well, that’s me in our house. I’m the horrible sick person. I whine. I complain. I cry. I don’t want to be sick! I hate it. I hate not getting stuff done. Having to lay around. Yuck. I could do without all of that.
So, anything that helps me feel better, I’m ALL for! That’s where this Cinnamon Sore Throat Tea comes in. It’s good. It soothes and coats. It comforts. It tastes yummy.
And, it’s easy to make, so even if you’re home alone and don’t feel like doing anything, you can make it quickly and crawl back in bed.
I like that this Cinnamon Sore Throat Tea has ginger to help nausea as well, as I often get nauseous when I’m sick.
Homemade tea for sore throat
Use the milk of your choice, dairy, plant-based, it’s all good. Besides, I’m a big believer in using what already tastes good to you.
For the pictures I used two different kinds of milk so you could see there’s a little difference in the way it looks.
I used cashew milk and my husband’s 2% dairy milk. Both were good. Both coated and soothed.
And, if you’re worried about the fact that milk may increase mucus (as many people have commented), again, feel free to use plant-based milk, as it works great!
There are so many kinds of milks that taste good – coconut, cashew, rice, almond, soy, dairy milk, cream, use what you like, and what you feel comfortable with.
In the picture above, the taller darker cup in the back has Cashew Milk in it, and the shorter mug in the front has 2% dairy milk in it.
And, you know, besides being great for when you aren’t feeling well, this cinnamon tea for sore throat is yummy anytime, as an evening snack to relax before bedtime, or as a breakfast drink instead of coffee.
