Grapefruit Tea – Home Cough Remedy

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on February 5, 2016

This home cough remedy is a warm, soothing way to help get rid of your cough!  A little bitter, it’s sweetened with honey and flavored with grapefruit, cinnamon and fresh ginger which are amazingly healthy foods to help get rid of a cough!


So I’m doing something just a little different today, a home remedy.  In the fall we had a pretty average cold that ended with a cough that lasted forever.  It wasn’t worth seeing a doctor over it was just annoying more than anything.  So of course, I googled home cough remedies.  I came across this post with a few different cough remedies and decided to try my own.  All the ingredients in this tea are helpful in getting rid of a cough.  In particular, fresh ginger is one of my absolute favorite ingredients when I’m feeling sick.  It’s naturally anti-inflammatory , and let me tell you, I can tell a difference when I use it.  Don’t skip this ingredient unless you really have to, and use as much of it as you can stand.  It does add a spiciness to the tea if you add enough or too much depending on how you feel about it.
