Enjoying the Nordic crispy cold winter can sometimes land you with a sore throat. Drink tea or herbal infusions at whatever temperature feels the most comfortable for you. Blackcurrants and peppermint are best known for their ability to relieve sore throats. Peppermint tea contains anti-inflammatory compounds and is very soothing for the throat. It also works to relieve the pain by slightly numbing the throat. Blackcurrants contain vitamin C and many other powerful antioxidants that are needed for rapid healing. Add a teaspoon of honey to sweeten your cup of herbal tea and provide even more soothing to your sore throat.
