Herbal Tea for Immune Support Recipe

One of the most popular herbal recipes, known for its wide range of health benefits and soothing qualities, is “Herbal Tea for Immune Support.”

This recipe combines several herbs to create a comforting and immune-boosting herbal tea.


Here’s a simple formula:


  • 1 teaspoon dried echinacea (Echinacea purpurea) or echinacea tea bag; you can use root or flower.
  • 1 teaspoon dried elderberries (Sambucus nigra).
  • 1 teaspoon dried ginger root (Zingiber officinale) 
  • 1 teaspoon dried peppermint leaf (Mentha piperita)
  • 1 teaspoon honey (optional for sweetness)
  • 1 slice of lemon (optional for flavor)


  1. Boil a cup of water (about 8 ounces).
  2. Place the dried herbs or herbal tea bags in a teapot or cup.
  3. Pour the boiling water over the herbs.
  4. Cover and steep for about 5-10 minutes. Adjust the steeping time based on your preference for the strength of the tea.
  5. Add a teaspoon of honey for sweetness and a slice of lemon for extra flavor.
  6. Stir well, strain (if using loose herbs), and enjoy your immune-boosting herbal tea.

This herbal tea recipe is popular because it combines the immune-boosting properties of echinacea and elderberry with the soothing qualities of ginger and peppermint. The honey adds sweetness, and the lemon can provide a refreshing twist. It’s commonly used during the cold and flu season or whenever you need a comforting and healthful beverage.

Remember that while herbal teas can offer many benefits, consult with a healthcare professional or herbalist before incorporating new herbs into your routine, especially if you have any underlying health conditions or are pregnant.
