Along with the drastic drops in temperature that the winter weather brings to residents of our London apartments, cold and flu season also goes hand in hand with the colder months. For today’s post, the Panoramic Properties’ blog team has put together a guide of three teas to help you stay healthy this winter.
First, it is important to steep the tea for about 10 to 15 minutes to get all the health benefits and to bring out the helpful properties of drinking herbal teas.
If you find yourself over-indulging this holiday season, peppermint tea relieves the symptoms of abdominal gas, bloating, and spasms. It’s also suitable for nausea (without vomiting) and for warming up the body to make it sweat. Avoid peppermint tea if you are suffering from indigestion or heartburn. You can either use teabags or add a few fresh or dry mint leaves to boiling water. To learn more about relaxation and peppermint tea, click here.
Chamomile tea can be helpful for insomnia, for digestion after a meal and is also great for people who have a cough or bronchitis. Chamomile tea can also be used to keep you healthy this winter when you have a cold or fever, or as a gargle for inflammation of the mouth.

Ginger tea is a great digestive aid and can be used to limit serious tummy trouble like nausea, vomiting or upset stomach. It is easy to make: just simmer a piece of ginger root in water on the stove for about 10 to 15 minutes. To combat the symptoms of a cold, add fresh lemon juice and honey for extra relief.
