I used Traditional Medicinals Breathe Easy tea during my last cold and found it quite pleasant. I don't think this particular variety was as effective for me as the T.M. Throat Coat or Cold Formula, but I would still recommend it. I intend to try it during my next allergy attack to see if it helps there.

I've used this for product for quite a few years and find it very effective when breathing is affected by colds or allergies.I prefer natural remedies and enjoy herbal tea...one tip when using this tea is to inhale the steam from the tea as well as drinking it to maximize it's effectiveness.

I sometimes have shortness of breath and tickling in my throat (have had asthmatic symptoms on and off), and the description of this product didn't make it seem like it would do any good for this type of breathing issue - only hay fever and maybe sinus congestion. I decided to try it anyway since I get colds fairly frequently. The effect was nice as I was drinking the tea (other than the taste, which I dislike since I found the licorice overpowered everything else). I can't say I felt any difference after I finished drinking it though...I intend to keep trying the tea and see if it works for me. Currently, any tea helps with the cough/tickle in my throat, so it doesn't seem to make a difference if it's this stuff specifically for breathing, or just any old tea.
