Sick Tea @ home 

Attention those with sore throats & sniffles:

Drinking this tea will put your sore throat at ease. 

Inspired by the Coldbuster (or Sick Tea) at Starbucks that my boyfriend recently brought home for me while I was sick as a dog in bed. He then did some homework and purchased ingredients to make this tea at home. 

You’ll need: 

  • 1 bag of peach tea
  • 1 bag of mint tea
  • 1 cup of boiling water 
  • 1 cup of heated lemonade 
  • 1 tablespoon of honey 

*ingredients listed are for a 16 ounces cup


1. Boil water in tea kettle 

2. Heat lemonade on stove or microwave for 1.5 minutes. Do not let lemonade boil. 

3. Pour 1 cup of each liquid into cup, followed by the honey. 

4. Place each tea bag into cup, let steep for 2-3 minutes.

The lemonade and peach provide a sweetness while the mint adds a cooling effect. The hot liquid and honey provides relief for a sore throat.
