Soothing Thyme Tea

Soothing Thyme Tea

Thyme has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. Thyme is known especially for soothing coughs and colds. It’s very easy to make thyme tea; enjoy it on its own or with a slice of ginger or lemon and a little honey. Your throat will thank you!




  1. Bring water to a boil. In the meantime, place thyme springs in a mug. (You can chop the sprigs or place them in a tea ball infuser. If you don’t have fresh thyme, add a teaspoon of dried thyme to the infuser.)
  2. Pour the boiling water over the sprigs or infuser and steep for 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Add ginger or lemon slice and/or honey and sip slowly.
