Why Drink Tea When You Have a Sore Throat?

Drinking fluids in general is especially important when you're sick (as you've probably heard your doctor say). Fluids help to keep your throat moist, which reduces pain and irritation in your throat.

Warm liquids like tea and broth are especially soothing to an irritated throat — all the more reason to enjoy a warm cup of tea! But aside from hydration, some teas can provide real health benefits and fight off illness.


While tea isn't going to be able to treat serious illness on its own, it can help ease certain symptoms like a sore throat. Many teas contain antioxidants, which are compounds that can help your body fight illnesses like colds and other viruses. Some teas and herbal blends are anti-inflammatory, which can help reduce pain and swelling associated with colds.


And of course, what's tea without a little honey? Honey is naturally antibacterial, and helps to coat the throat and soothe irritation. So next time you're feeling under the weather, sip a few mugs of warm, soothing tea.


Chamomile Tea

Chamomile is known to have both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, helping to reduce swelling and repair tissue. It's also an antispasmodic, meaning it can help to reduce any coughing as well. And inhaling chamomile steam is a popular home remedy for treating respiratory issues associated with the common cold.
