Tea Thyme

Thyme, either dried or fresh, contains a large amount of antimicrobial compounds that fight against colds and the flu. Thyme also has expectorant properties that can help calm a cough. Next time you’re feeling under the weather, try making some thyme tea.



  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • 2 teaspoons of dried thyme OR 3 teaspoons of fresh thyme.

You can drink 1-3 cups daily for cold, flu, or cough symptoms.

You can also gargle with the tea (once it has cooled down a bit) to help soothe a sore throat. I know it might not be so tasty, but it helps!

  1. I love this, Annie! I totally think drinking herbal tea helps when I feel like I’m getting sick. I’m definitely going to try this though next time. Thanks!


  2. I love this advice! And thyme too (haha, I was just writing another post with a recipe that uses it :)) – it makes everything taste just that much better! Thank you for this :)

  3. Annie – this is great. I’m a big believer in tea of all kinds, but have never tried anything like this. Perfection – this is going straight to a bookmark (of which I should pretty much just bookmark your entire page!!)
