Falling sick sucks. Period. Being someone who is slightly on the lower end of the immunity spectrum falling sick tends to happen more often than I would like it. That doesn’t mean I am unhealthy – I eat right, I eat good food and I exercise. But sometimes the seasonal bug does get to you and this time it was bad. I needed something that made me feel better without having to worry about any possible side effects.
My mom likes to explore with traditional home made concoctions to make me feel better and kick the flu in the bud. Since mommy wasn’t around and also with me trying to act all grown up I reached for the next best thing – Mama Earth Feel Better Tea.
What is in Mama Earth Feel Better Tea?
Mama Earth Feel Better Tea comes with the goodness of Chamomile, Mint, Ginger and Nettle leaf.

How to brew a healthy cup of Feel Better Tea?
To get the maximum benefits from an herbal tea it must first be brewed in a proper manner.
- Add 200 ml of freshly boiled water to a ceramic cup and add a Feel Better Tea bag
- Cover the cup with a lid and let it sit for 10 – 15 minutes – Steeping helps get the beneficial nutrients from the tea
- Gently squeeze the tea bag to remove the remaining extracts
- Drink 1-2 cups daily between meals for maximum benefit
What I liked about Mama Earth Feel Better Tea
I am a tea person that being said I prefer water-based teas to milk based ones. I find them soothing, relaxing and very easy and quick to make. Mama Earth Feel Better Tea has a distinct herbal-based taste; that being said this isn’t bitter. I consumed the tea without any additional sweeteners, if you are not used to this I would suggest adding some honey instead of sugar as honey also helps in soothing the throat. The fragrance is mild nothing to rave or complain about.
I drank this tea twice a day pre lunch and in the evening and it helped keep the flu sluggishness away and actually made me feel refreshed. Certain herbal teas can have a slight upsetting feeling on the stomach or discomfort, but I was happy that this didn’t cause any discomfort. But do keep in mind how you brew and when you drink an herbal tea makes all the difference.
This tea can be drunk by almost anyone who wants feels refreshed or energized. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding it is advisable to speak to your medical practitioner before adding anything new to your diet.
