Cold and flu season is in full swing. I want to wipe down all the surfaces in my home (including my kids) just thinking about it. I hate getting sick.
When my husband gets sick, he wants to be completely ignored in a quiet room until he feels better. Which never happens, by the way. When I get sick, I want to be tucked in bed and spoon fed chicken noodle soup while someone gently mops my fevered brow with a cool washcloth in between entertaining my children and doing loads of laundry. Which also never happens.
One thing we both agree on is Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat Herbal Tea (3 pack!). A friend introduced us to this tea a couple years ago and now I make sure we never run out of it. It is amazing. With a comforting licorice flavor (there is also a lemon echinacea variety), it instantly coats and soothes a sore throat. It costs more than any other tea I buy, but when I am feeling crummy, Throat Coat Tea is worth every penny. I am pretty sure there are magic ingredients in each tea bag.
Looking for a thoughtful gift? Give boxes of this tea, paired with fun insulated mugs (doing their laundry, optional), and you will win Friend of the Year award, guaranteed.
