What I Drink In The Morning To Start My Day Off Right! 😊

In the mornings, I’ve been drinking warm tea to get a good start to my day!

I’ve actually been brewing sage and thyme for my tea and adding the tea packets to that brew. I’ll normally add Yogi’s “Cold Season” or “Detox” tea for added benefits. Here are the awesome benefits of drinking sage and thyme tea!

Benefits of Sage Tea

Sage is used to help with stomach pain, bloating and heartburn. Sage is also said to improve memory, alertness, and attention in healthy adults.

Benefits of Thyme Tea

Thyme has antioxidant properties, soothes coughs and congestion, and relieves gas and bloating. Thyme is also rich in iron, vitamin K, manganese, and calcium!

If you are someone who has digestive problems or if you just need something to wake you up other than coffee, you should try sage and/or thyme tea!

*Make sure to always check with your physician before adding anything new to your diet.

More Reasons To Drink Tea In The Morning!


This is the season for stuffy noses, annoying coughs, and the common cold. But I actually found a solution!

One weekend, My husband had a really bad cough and was congested like crazy!

Pinterest is my go to for remedies for almost anything! So I found a post on how to get rid of congestion.


Steep 1 tablespoon of dried thyme in a cup of hot water for about 5 minutes. Strain the thyme from the hot water.

Cut 2 lemon wedges and squeeze the lemon into the thyme tea.

I added about 1 tablespoon of honey(optional) for a more pleasant taste.

Stir the tea so the honey dissolves and then drink up!

My husband drank the tea and in about 20 minutes, he stopped coughing and he was able to rid of his congestion! I was so amazed that it actually worked! (For other cases, some people may need to drink more than one cup of Thyme Tea to see results).

Benefits of each ingredient:

THYME: It is said to be a helpful expectorant for chest congestion that helps eliminate accumulated mucus, has anti-microbial properties,  and can also help cure cough, sore throat, or congestion.
