I'm a singer and after tons of rehearsals and performances my voice gets pretty tired. Anytime my throat starts feeling irritated I reach for a big, well-steeped cup of this tea. The slippery elm root is very soothing for scratchy, tired throats and the taste is sweet and mellow (though it takes a little getting used to at first). Almost every other vocalist I know also swears by the stuff. There's also an Organic Lemon Echinacea version of Throat Coat - good for those nasty colds that wreck havoc on your throat and lungs.
I drink some kind of Traditional Medicinals tea everyday. This one's perfect for taking care of a scratchy, achy throat.
