Instant Pot Immune Booster Tea is just the thing that you need to make and drink if you’ve come down with a cold or are starting to feel a little icky. It’s also a really fabulous detox tea!
I’ve worked in the pits of the restaurant industry for over 20 years, and had the pleasure with working with a German pastry chef. In the restaurant industry, you can’t afford to be sick. Once one person gets sick, everyone else is sure to follow.
PLUS you have to worry about if your manager is going to let you go home or not. Whether or not you’re sick, doesn’t matter. The restaurant needs those warm bodies on the floor, and unless you are literally dying on the floor curled up in a fetal position, they were not sending you home.
Honestly, I can’t remember the pastry chef’s name because it’s just been too long. However, if one of my friends remember her name, then I will update the post.
Anyways, she used to make this great big pot of what we called her “Witches Brew.” During the cold and flu season, she always had one steeping everyday on the stove for us.
We literally drank this stuff by the gallon! Does it taste amazing? Not really, but you get used the ginger citrus flavor. Also, the honey used to sweeten it helps to bite through it and makes it somewhat bearable. But I’m telling you, this stuff is like a miracle in a cup when it comes to stomping out cold and flu symptoms!
Of course, I’m not a medical professional at all, so please make sure you see a doctor if your symptoms get worse. I’m not here to give medical advice, but I’m here to tell you that I LOVE homeopathic remedies that actually work.
