How To Use

Brew Well to be Well™
For maximum benefit, medicinal tea must be properly prepared. Pour 8 oz. freshly boiled water over a tea bag in a ceramic cup. Cover cup and steep 10-15 minutes. These steps directly influence the amount of beneficial components that will end up in your teacup! Gently squeeze the tea bag to release any remaining extract. Drink 4 to 6 cups daily or as needed. To maximize the coating action of the herbs, gargle before swallowing. To enhance benefits, add honey, especially in dry climates.

For an extra strength brew, use two teabags or brew up a whole pot using four or five teabags.
As with any herbal supplement, do not use during pregnancy or lactation without the advice of a practitioner trained in medicinal herbalism.

I had just bought it and drink it with me on the way to the gym, during my workout I started feeling better immediately. Woke up the next day without a sore throat, this is really food and worth it! Doesn’t taste the best but you’ll get used to it especially if you want the pain gone :)

Throat Coat Rescue
I was struggling with a severe cold, sore throat and ear ache when I stumbled upon an old tea bag - throat coat to the rescue! Within 1/2 hr, I could breathe, swallow and sleep again!

Works...Horrid Taste
The herbs in this tea have worked for hundreds of years, and they still work today to kick a horrible sore throat. If you do not like the flavor of licorice, you will HATE the taste of this tea. However, if you can get past that and get a few cups of this strong brew down over several hours, you will notice an immediate result. A cold with a severely painful sore throat that led to laryngitis was remedied remarkably over just three large cups of this tea. I simmer the tea bag in the pot with the water to really release the herbals into the brew, but it works as brewed on the box as well.

Great for Singers
I am a singer & I also suffer from allergies, especially post nasal drip which tends to dry & irritate my throat. I was introduced to Throat Coat tea by another singer & it was amazing! After a few sips, my throat felt relaxed & soothed. I drink a cup just before I have to sing & I instantly sing better. No more coughing or clearing my throat during a performance or rehearsal. I highly recommend it to anyone who sings.

Great throat rehab for singers!
I stock up on this product when I know I'm going into long multi-day practices and performances. Nothing soothes my throat like this product, not only does it sooth, but it also allows me to actually sing when I need some rehab after a couple days. I drink it 30-45 minutes before a performance or practice and it helps every time! I love it!

This is my magic 'make me sing' juice. When my voice goes and it's not a good time for that to be happening, stirct vocal rest only gets you so far, and that's not guaranteeing getting better just not worse. There's been times that I've woken up with barely a speaking voice, forget singing, and I'll drink about 5 glasses of this in a day before an audition, and not only was I able to sing but had an amazing audition. I would recommend this to everyone ESPECIALLY singers. Just add a bit of honey to enhance the taste and benefits :)
