Sickness has swept thru our house this past week. Complete with the stuffy nose, sneezing, coughing, and blahness. I was doing all my normal natural remedies and researching to find more. I stumbled across a post talking about the benefits of Starbucks Medicine Ball Tea. I had never tried it before but decided to give it a go. It was amazing.
The tea was delicious. It helped soothe my throat and open my sinuses. It was perfect but was also 5$ for just 1 cup. I’m always on the lookout for deals and how can I make it myself. I make a lot of home remedies and recipes for health and wellness and this was next on my list. Online I found the ingredients and tried my hand at making it myself. It took a few tries to get the taste 100% but eventually I perfected it.
This copycat Starbucks medicine ball tea recipe is feel better perfection and even more perfect on the wallet. Each box of tea can be purchased at Walmart or another local store for about 2.50$ each. The honey was the most expensive. I prefer honey from local spots which runs about 10-12$ but to me the benefits of local honey is worth it. Regardless of how much I spend on the honey the total is less than 30$ and I can make at minimum 15 cups of tea. To me that is a health and financial win.
