As the weather turns colder, it becomes a great season for brewing warm tea. But it also tends to become a season for germs as well. Meet both needs with a cup of Immunity from Virginia Tea Co. With several powerhouse herbs that boost your immune system, like echinacea and elderberries, this cup is good for both your mental and physical health.
Fragrant ginger and cinnamon are the first notes I smell in this blend. Those two herbs tend be a cornerstone of most chai blends, so their spiciness is familiar and warming, without the caffeine of black tea. Upon my first sip, the fruitier flavors of elderberries and tart echinacea fill my senses. The sweet, dark berry flavor of the elderberries lingers the longest on my tongue, with the ginger and cinnamon just a flash of spice in the scent. If you’re not a fan of chai flavors, don’t worry, this one is much more fruity than spicy.
This herbal tea is pleasantly earthy, and not overly sweet or artificial. This would be great on its own or brewed with honey if your throat it is scratchy and your morale is low. I love the idea of a more berry-based blend for those under-the-weather days. I have so many lemon and chamomile restoratives, this Immunity blend adds the perfect variety to my get-well tea cupboard.
Whether you feel a cold coming on, or you just want to be prepared for the season, order up some Immunity from Virginia Tea Co. and stay warm and healthy this cold season.

I rarely even reach for a Cold & Flu Herbal Tisane because I usually don’t have to. I have been lucky to NOT catch much of what my friends, family, and co-workers catch. But sometimes I think it’s better and wiser to be proactive and nip in the in butt before it’s too late to combat! That is why Cold & Flu Relief from The Virginia Tea Company jumped out at me recently!
The ingredients include Organic Peppermint, Organic Spearmint, Yarrow Flower, Organic Ginger, Organic Echinacea, Organic Elderberry. Right away I knew the company added a little extra TLC in to this herbal tisane.
Because of the Peppermint and Spearmint I was very pleased with this flavor. It’s comforting when it’s hot. I supposed one could also infuse this and ice it because I opted for the hotter the better.
The flavor was heavier on the herbal side of things but the minty-freshness lingered nicely and made it come full circle. This one is a keeper – especially when you DON’T need it – if you know what I mean! And if you don’t know what I mean…I mean…Be PRO-ACTIVE, folks! Get ahead of the dreaded cold and flu – combat and fight all you can – while you can! I’m not saying this will ‘cure you’ but it certainly helped me fight what ever everyone else is suffering from!
