This year’s flu season has been the most widespread on record since health officials began keeping track 13 years ago (Washington Post).
To prevent the flu: wash your hands, cover your mouth when you cough, and do not to go into public if you’re starting to feel sick.
When you have the flu: Drink Tea!
At Happy Lucky’s Teahouse, we want to help you stay healthy and happy, so we’re going to tell you about four magical brews you the season of sickness.
Four Teas for Flu Season
This is the tea you should already be drinking. It’s a blend of immune boosting herbs, flowers, roots and peels that are designed to help you fight off impending doom. If you’re starting to feel slight symptoms or you notice others around you beginning to sniffle, brew up some Be Well. The soothing power of ginger root and the white blood cell boosting ability of echinacea (WebMD) are just a few ingredients that promote wellness in this lovely herbal blend.
Another blend to fortify the immune system during cold and flu season. This Happy Lucky’s blend is a great combo of health-boosting herbs and well-balanced flavor. Rose hips to hibiscus, this is an all-around healthy tea for revitalizing and rejuvenating the body and mind.
Already sick? When the symptoms hit, Cosmic Cold is the brew for you. It has a slight bitter taste, but the herbal blend of chamomile, yarrow, feverfew, elder berry, elder flower, red clover, rose hips, hibiscus, yerba santa, cinnamon and lemon peel is known to cut flu time in half and assist the body in relieving cold symptoms. But if you’re already sick, the slight medicinal flavor won’t bother you! If it does, a little honey does wonders for this tea. “Drink it until you can taste it,” says Kari Grossman, Happy Lucky’s co-owner, “That’s how you know it’s working.
After your symptoms are starting to settle down and you can smell fresh air again, you’ll probably experience some nasty nasal draining. Never fear! Koala Bear is here! This herbal blend is great for “…when your nose is running off your face,” remarks Kari. Breathe it in – this tea’s aroma is as beneficial as the brew. The flavor has some mentho-lyptus action with notes of citrus and licorice.
Rotate all FOUR herbal blends throughout the day for superstar immunity power. Take care of your body, and Nourish Your Happy.
