Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat tea was a blessing to me during my last cold. I had a terribly sore throat, and this helped immensely. While sipping this, my throat felt almost back to normal. I also LOVED the taste. It was tasty enough that I would have no problem drinking it as a regular tea, but I do save it for when I have a cold. I strongly recommend this tea!

I don't get colds (I know that sounds absurd, but I only get about 1 cold every 4 years) so I haven't had this, but I bought it because it was requested by name by my aunt, who gets sick a lot. Apparently it's very helpful, and Traditional Medicinals brand is not readily available locally any more. Worth coming online for...the teas are very fresh and strong and effective.
