No one enjoys having the cold or the flu, which is why the industry for medications for these maladies is a multi billion dollar industry. Luckily, modern medicine is beginning to see the validity of consuming tea as helping with the cold and flu. While this has been done as a folk cure for many years, there is evidence that drinking tea can help alleviate symptoms and decrease the length of time that one suffers from a cold or the flu.
