Best Teas for the Cold Season
Updated on December 8, 2017

Feeling under the weather as the temperature is dropping? Herbs can help. We turn to plant allies like echinacea, elderberry, yarrow, and eucalyptus for extra support when we need it most—all of which are key players in our Seasonal Tea collection, and each for their own unique reasons.

Need to rev up your immune system in advance? Try our Echinacea Plus® or Echinacea Plus® Elderberry teas. Feeling raspy and scratchy? Soothe with our sweet and comforting Throat Coat® tea. Or, maybe you just need a breath of fresh air, that’s where eucalyptus comes in handy, featured in our Throat Coat® Eucalyptus and Breathe Easy® teas. Guide yourself to the best herbal blends for you by using our Seasonal Wellness Decision Tree.

How are you feeling? I need seasonal support*

Herbal Cold Care™: Fragrant, minty, slightly sweet and spicy. This centuries-old European blend of elderflower, yarrow, and peppermint provides warmth and comfort when you need it most.

Reishi Mushroom with Rooibos & Orange Peel: Known in Asia for 2,000 years as “the mushroom of immortality,” reishi is gaining popularity in the West for its ability to support the immune system and help keep the body in balance.* We created this sweet and citrusy blend with rooibos and orange peel for gentle, daily immune support.*

Echinacea Plus® Elderberry: Sweet and tart with berry notes. Elderberry is widely known for its immune-boosting properties, and we couple it with echinacea for a tasty herbal power team.*

Echinacea Plus®: Mildly minty, with a twist of citrus. This echinacea based tea will fire up your immune system.* Have some on hand for when you need a boost of wellness.

Throat Coat®: Sweet and silky, with a distinct licorice taste. Our best-selling blend highlights slippery elm, a soothing plant ally when your throat needs some love.*

Throat Coat® Lemon Echinacea: Sweet and lemony. This unique formula blends the soothing power of marshmallow root and licorice with the immune-supporting goodness of echinacea to give you relief when you need it.*

Throat Coat® Eucalyptus: Sweet and earthy with a refreshing hint of mint, this tea combines slippery elm and eucalyptus to create an arsenal of support for both the throat and the chest.*

Breathe Easy®: Floral and minty with a hint of eucalyptus, this blend harnesses the power of Bi Yan Pian, a Traditional Chinese Medicine blend of eleven herbs, to help promote respiratory health.*

Licorice Root: Called “sweet stalk” in Sanskrit and “sweet herb” in Chinese, licorice is loved around the world, not only for its sweetness, but for its role in supporting respiratory and digestive health.*
