Soothe a Sore Throat With Hot Tea

Step 1

First heat up some water. A kettle works best however you can use what ever means available. Once you have your heated water proceed to the next step.

Step 2

Add about one to two tea spoons of honey to the bottom of your cup. Pour in the hot water and stir to dissolve the honey. The honey is a great way to provide soothing relief.

Step 3

Now steep your tea. I prefer green tea but a tea infused with peppermint is a great way to combat congestion. You will want to steep the tea for 3 to 5 min. Some other options are white tea, black tea, and red tea. There are many varieties available. Choose the kind that you like the most and don't be afraid to mix and match.

Step 4

Now you have some nice hot tea to enjoy. Green tea is full of antioxidants which help to fight free radicals.
