Cold, Cough, and Flu is inevitable in our house dealing with an auto-immune disorder. We can try our hardest to stay well but it’s inevitable that we will catch something. Sometimes we just need to keep supplies on hand to soothe our scratchy throat or allow us to get something to stay down that has a dose of healthy antioxidants. During our regular trips to Walmart, I always stock up on some of our favorite Bigelow Tea varieties to soothe whatever symptoms cold, cough, and flu season brings our way! Bigelow Tea is All American: 100% American made by an American Family; an American Company for the American consumer. Available at an American Retailer – Walmart.
The last 2 weeks have been pretty miserable in our house. Our youngest son is in school for the first time. While school in general seems to bring lots of sick germs home, the first year of building up immunity is the worst! We have been pulling out all the tricks to speed up the recovery or to keep Hunter (our son with an auto-immune disorder) from getting really sick to the point of requiring a trip to the hospital.
Our secret weapon is Bigelow Tea and a few of our favorite things that make soothing those miserable symptoms feel like a treat. Let’s get started on making Bigelow Tea Spiced Apple Juice. Bring apple juice, water, cloves, and cinnamon sticks to a boil.
Simmer for 5 minutes.
Now remove cloves and cinnamon sticks before pouring spiced apple juice over Bigelow Tea bags of choice. I often use Bigelow American Breakfast Tea with 50% more caffeine or Green Tea. By the way, I love some of the bonus offers in some of the varieties like free Plantation Mint in the Earl Grey or the 4 bonus bags in Bigelow Green Tea. Then steep as directed for your variety of tea.
- 2 cup apple juice (unsweetened)
- 1 cup water

- Place apple juice, water, cinnamon stick, and cloves into pan over medium heat until boiling. Simmer for 5 minutes.
