It is wintertime here in Philly, and it is finally starting to feel like it now that we have officially had our first snow. Luckily, cold weather means warm drinks. So, whether you have a cold or just need to be warmed up, we have a few suggestions for you!

  1. Chamomile tea for relaxation
  2. Ginger tea for a pick-me-up
  3. Peppermint tea for tummy trouble
  4. Licorice root tea to soothe a sore throat
  5. Lemon balm tea for winter blahs
  6. Stinging nettle leaf tea for allergies
  7. Dr. Oz’s detox tea for after the food coma
  8. Milk thistle tea for after too much eggnog

According to legend, it was discovered in 2737 BC by the Emperor of China, and for thousands of years since it was used daily for its healing properties. Today, herbal teas claim to do everything — detoxify the liver, help you sleep, even fight cancer.

A few years winters back, I started drinking chamomile tea at bedtime to put me to sleep, and that launched me on a never-ending quest to find the perfect tea cure for everything. If you’re thinking about grabbing a box on your next trip to the supermarket, here are some well-researched suggestions. Because when it’s 10 degrees below zero outside, there is something about snuggling under a fleece blanket and sipping from your favorite mug that sends the winter blues a-flying.
