Echinacea tea is stimulating and warming, ideal for a cold wintery day. The mixture of Echinacea root and flowering tops, rosemary and lemon verbena can be useful in reducing the severity of the symptoms of a cold. Echinacea was traditionally used for coughs and colds. Recent scientific research supports this. Ginger is often used for its warming effects.
