Home remedies for sore throat: sore throat tea

Honey and lemon tea, as well as ginger tea, has long been considered amongst the best home remedies for sore throats and cold congestion too. Other teas good for sore throats and cold remedies are eucalyptus, echinacea, turmeric and chilli.

Believe it or not, chilli is a popular herb for fighting colds and flu and its warming attributes are what calm any swelling or soreness of the throat. 

At Bird & Blend we have plenty of teas that will help sore throats: chilli packed Hot Mama Jama and Kung Flu Fighter and ginger packed Gingerbread Chai. How about Lemon Sherbet? Any of these with a squeeze of lemon, a dash of whisky or a dollop of raw honey and your sore throat will be soothed in no time! 

We also have a fantastic sore throat tea recipe featuring all the cold busting super ingredients. This easy sore throat tea recipe is enjoyed during the winter months by our local Brighton Gospel Choir to keep their vocal cords in tip top shape! 

We call it Hot Mama's House Special, or the Sore Throat Destroyer! 

Hot Mama Jama - Sore Throat Remedy

On its own, our healing and soothing Hot Mama Jama tea blend is sure to make your day brighter with loads of vitamin C, metabolism boosting chilli and antioxidant rich green tea leaves. But when stirred up with immune-boosting turmeric, soothing raw honey and fresh lemons it creates a fantastic sore throat remedy tea too! 

The Sore Throat Destoyer!

What You Need:


What To Do:

1. Add 2 heaped teaspoons of Hot Mama Jama to your brewing device (teapot/IngenuiTEA/infuser). We love our Brewdini, the innovative no-mess and no-fuss brewer.


2. Pour 80 degree water. (If you don’t have a fancy kettle just add a splash of cold water before you add the hot.) Brew for 4 minutes.


3. Pour tea into cup, squeeze and add lemon slices.


4. Add 1/2 tsp of turmeric to your tea and stir well. A spoon of honey stirred in is optional, but we highly recommend!   

This is the ultimate sore throat tea. We've got plenty of other yummy and healthy recipes with honey.
