I came up with this tea when I had a bad flu a few years ago and I had a huge event to go to. I always have a few hidden ingredients in my cabinet for a ‘rainy day’. This tea boosted my immune system and I was up that very same day and on a flight to Toronto the next day. I drink it every single day during winter along with my Turmeric Ginger Tonic.
