Feeling groggy? Your nose can't make its mind up between being runny or stuffed?
It's that time of the year.
I'm not often ill but when I start to have cold symptoms, I drink loads of tea, Immune Boost and Man Flu. The former to try to stop the progression of the cold by boosting the system and help the body to recover faster. The latter to alleviate the symptoms.
At least three cups a day, alternating between the two blends, and I'm back to normal in just a few days!
Caffeine-free, so you can drink it at any time of the day.
