This past Friday at market was the start of the winter pass around illnesses. For whatever reason it seemed to target the men market vendors. Maybe there was something in the woods, since it was the first week of deer season. I’m sure the deer had little sympathy. But seriously people all over York had “The Throat Thing”. Well, the throat thing brought new and old tea drinkers to my stand. The requests were all the same, “Do you have a tea for this throat thing?”
What I know about men and those none serious health people is they are wimps in what they will do to help themselves. So, based on this, I knew the Germ Blaster tea blend was not going to be their cup of tea. But I did what to offer them some relief. I went with a mix of eucalyptus leaf, nettle leaf, ginger root and rosehips. I went heavy on the rosehips to give them a Vit. C jolt. One man’s voice returned after drinking only one cup, everyone came back for a second cup. Now that’s dedication!
Don’t wait to get sick. Drink herbal teas daily to stay ahead of the cold and flu season.
