This is a super efficient home-made flu tea that you have to try! It tastes good and it works. It is actually a drink we have every single morning first thing when we wake up. It is the best tea for flu and for all sorts of aches in the body. Some of its’ ingredients are actually considered to be natural painkillers.

Flu tea with amazing healing properties

This home-made flu tea drink can help you in so many ways. It has got ginger, turmeric, lemon, thyme, cinnamon and honey (we love Melisanthi’s raw organic honeys from Ikaria, Greece) that all have great health boosting properties. We also add Akroria’s Organic Mountain Tea from Ikaria, Greece as it makes the drink taste even more like tea (and mountain tea harvested from the island of Ikaria has many health benefits). Many of them are naturally anti-inflammatory and even antibacterial.
