My favorite tea for colds is ginger tea. I boil a two-inch piece of fresh ginger and then sweeten with honey. Another great tea for colds is peppermint. It's so soothing and helps clear the sinuses. There's an herbal blend tea here in Peru that has spearmint, eucalyptus and coca leaves. We always keep it on hand for cold or flu emergencies.
