If you have a persistent cough, or excess phlegm and congestion, try calming turmeric and stimulating ginger to alleviate your symptoms. For mucus or phlegm build up, turmeric will help to dissolve it and leave your chest feeling less heavy by killing the bacteria that cause these build-ups and is even more beneficial in hot liquid form.
If you have a stuffy head from congestion, you can also look toward aromatic ginger to blast it away. Studies have shown that it’s compound gingerol helps to suppress mucus production from the get go, so start drinking when you feel your cold beginning. Spicy ginger in tea can calm coughs and clear the sinuses too, helping to prevent those frustrating sniffles throughout the day.

They are a higher price but well worth it, with drinkers reporting they can use the bag for a second mug for a treat just as sweet. With all the throat coating and anti-inflammatory benefits of liquorice and peppermint, this award-winning tea will clear mucus, ease your stomach and speed up recovery.
Even when symptoms are only beginning to creep up, this tea can serve as a great preventative measure before the worse sets in. It's worth nothing that it contains black tea for a light energy boost and those all-important antioxidants and tannins, but this does mean it is not caffeine-free.
