Herbal Gan Mao Cha cold remedy tea

Weather alone can’t make a person ill, but changes in weather are accompanied by a host of other changes that can give a person flu symptoms. Our body is used to function in a consistent environment. With the change of Season’s the temperature changes forcing our body to re-adapt. During this period our immune system can be vulnerable to contagious cold viruses or other infections.

The more reason to avoid the seasonal sniffles and have cold remedies at hand for me preferably herbal products. Herbal teas are my favourite way to ingest medicinally concoction either hot or at room temperature.

Herbal tea is a beverage made from the infusion or decoction of herbs, spices, or other plant material in hot water, and usually, does not contain caffeine. Alternate popular terms for “herbal tea” are “tisane,” “botanical” and “herbal infusion.”


Amazing Oriental Supermarkets, a new arrival at the tea section, herbal brand “Four seasonal Instant Tea for Fever Relief & Cold“.  Just looking at the composition of the herbal ingredients list and the fact that it is an instant drink made me decide to purchase and try at home. Normally I would choose the medicinal dried herb mix packages. To brew herbal tea isn’t that difficult it only needs time to steep slowly to extract all the beneficial nutrients. If time is not at hand using a package of instant granules is a time saver.

Herbal Gan Mao Cha

I enjoy to drink Four Seasonal instant herbal tea and must say the medicinal herb complex works well for me, using two bags at the time. The nourishing herbs really aided to relieve my cold infections by reducing coughs and phlegm. The herbal tea has a minty sweetness and a slightly bitter aftertaste due to licorice but pleasant, you can always add a bit of honey extra in your mug. 

The bag contains 16 packages, just tear a package open add hot water in a mug, pour in the granules, stir and voilà. Easy does it! Promotion purchase forgot the exact amount “Instant tea for coughing” approximately € 3,75  that is cheaper than most standard medicines and cough syrups.

Holy molly, need to stock on these herbal instant tea fast.  Note: This is not a sponsored post, item is purchased for own personal use as healthy home treatment. Tested for my own benefit in speedy recovery. Try and use at your own discretion.
