Cough buster thyme tea

Cough buster thyme tea

This is by far one of my most potent tea recipe.

Thyme  is sold both fresh and dried. The fresh form is more flavourful, but also less convenient; storage life is rarely more than a week. While summer-seasonal, fresh greenhouse thyme is often available year round.

Thyme tea is a natural and potent expectorant

It relieves cough and loosens phlegm. Extracts from thyme have shown relaxant and broncho-dilatory effects.

The Manuka Honey which is know for its antiseptic and antiviral properties will make this tea more potent.

Cayenne pepper and Turmeric and ginger are powerful healers.

Cayenne will heat your body, making you sweat and will help you get rid of toxins.

  2. Hi
    I could not find thyme tea any where in Vancouver(lower main land).Though I found dried thyme seeds.Can the dried seeds be used in place of thyme dried leaves for making tea?if not where to find thyme tea or from where to get/ship good thyme tea?

    • Hi Kulwant,
      Google search and try to find Manana Thyme tea. it is organic and you get order online. Yu can also grow your own next summer. The seeds wont work the same. hope this helps!

  3. Best relief / cure I have ever come across. This is the second time I have been sick in 10 years….looked up a thyme tea receipe for my cough….had been suffering for 1 week coughing all night as it had moved to my lungs made this tea…’s strong…….but works! My 16 y/o son said it was too spicy but drank it …. He was fine the next day after having symptoms for 2 days. You should patent this receipe it’s great.

  4. Where can I buy Thyme tea? Thanks, Serina

  5. just made this 10 mins ago because i’ve been suffering from allergies and a cold/flu for a week. i didn’t want to take OTC meds so i googled natural cough aide and here we are…my throat feels great and my house smells very earthy…many thanks.

  6. Can this be made ahead of time and saved in the freezer? Or can an extract be made at home that has a long shelf life?

    • Hi Michele,
      It is best to make it fresh daily. If this is not an option you can make a batch for a few days and keep refrigerated. Thanks for asking 😀

  7. just wondering if you drink the entire recipe 3 – 4 x day. or divvy up the recipe to take 3-4 x a day (1/3 – 1/4 cup at a time0
