This tea helps kick cold and flu butt! Garlic has anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, but remember its important to crush garlic in order to activate allicin – a potent bacteria and viral fighting substance! Combined with ginger, a deliciously warming spice, this tea helps to boost circulation and fight infection. Lemons provide a lovely citrus taste and a much-needed hit of vitamin C. Look for Manuka honey with a UMF (Unique Manuka Factor) of 10+ to get true therapeutic value. This tea is will help sooth, warm and has a beautiful zesty taste!
