If you have a friend or loved one who’s been done in by cold and flu season, consider this misery-fighting Cold Survival Kit from David’s Teas.

The collection of five super-soothing teas helps battle virulent viruses:

  • Sip Secret Weapon at the first sign of a cold (white tea, almond slices, cacao nibs, licorice, goji berries, orange peel).
  • For a sore throat, try a little Super Ginger (ginger, rooibos tea, pink peppercorns, black pepper, white pepper) or Bravissimo (licorice root, chamomile, rose hips, orange peel, peppermint, goji berries).
  • Feeling queasy? North African Mint will settle your stomach (cardamom, peppermint, ginger, hojicha green tea, licorice root, fennnel, clove, black pepper).
  • And when all else fails, dip into your emergency supply of Cold 911 (eucalyptus oil, goji berries, juniper berries, peppermint, orange oil).

    The Cold Survival Kit is $19.50 at Davud’s Tea stores in Boston, Chicago, New York City, San Francisco and Westport or online at



    Tea isn’t a miracle cure, but when you’ve got a cold, every little bit helps.

    According to, people with colds should drink lots of fluids to prevent dehydration, compensating for the fluids lost in all that nose-blowing, coughing and sneezing.

    Hot liquids are better than cold ones: They help to relieve nasal congestion and the pressure from blockage. They also help to soothe the inflamed membranes that line the nose and throat, making breathing easier.

    The same dynamic comes from “Jewish penicillin,” chicken soup (any hot soup will do).

    If you’ll be drinking lots of tea, make some of it caffeine-free. Caffeine is a diuretic, which removes water from the body.
