Default A good tisane tea for a cold

Im sitting here with an achy stuffy head cold and slight fever. Over
the long haul I have about every popular tisane ever mixed with tea.
Last night I had some jasmine blossom, lemon myrtle, orange blossom,
rose flower with greenish oolong which made me feel a lot better.
Does anybody else use a tisane traditionally mixed with tea for a
cold.

I think I have ginger pieces in tea. Ill have to look. Im more
interested in a tisane/tea perse not some standalone herbal remedy
with a teapot off to the side.

Ginger. Without a doubt. I've posted here a few times about it but my
mother and some close Korean friends both do the exact same thing.
Boil some coins of ginger for a good long time and then sometimes with
added raw honey, sometimes straight. It will do wonders.

Default A good tisane tea for a cold

What I discovered from my once a decade cold is I want something that
taste good with the tea and not something that was medicinal. Ive
been collecting tisanes over the years from my local British tea
shoppe. I must have every dried fruit and flower combinations in
existence. Even everyday dried orange peel and blossoms tasted
great. I wanted to see see something floating around in the cup that
I could eat. Citrus flowers proved to be the best for breaking
through the bad taste of a cold in the morning and dried fruits in the
evening. Tea tells you when you are getting sick and when you are
getting well. While you are sick it tells the severity.
