Is hot tea and honey good for a sore throat?


Answer by  Latin4 (11170)

Thats an old remedy, but it still works. It is better then having a cup of coffee. Also putting cotton in your ears at night helps to keeps your ears warm and helps keep drainage in control and prevent nasal drip in the throat.

That's what my doctor always recommends. The honey is supposed to coat the throat. I guess the warmth can soothe the sinuses too. You could also gargle with warm salt water.

It does not cure your sore throat, but hot tea and honey make it feel so much better. It is a great home remedity.

Hot tea and honey are a natural remedy for a sore throat, and honey is also one natural way to calm down a cough. Adding a little bit of lemon to the honey and hot tea can give you even more relief. Many throat lozenges put honey in them because of its soothing effects.

Yes the warmth from the tea is soothing and the honey has anti microbial properties that help kill an infection. You may want to take some honey by itself too.
