Crockpot Cranberry Citrus Cinnamon Tea is one of the first things I make when someone in my family feels like they’re coming down with a cold.

This is a warm and soothing drink laced with plenty of honey to soothe coughs and scratchy throats. Make it in the crockpot, rather than one cup at a time, and sip it throughout the day when you need a bit of comfort.

Soothe Yourself

I don’t rely on tea to keep us in good health, of course. But it sure does help keep us feeling comforted and warm during a long, bitter winter.

  • Honey is excellent at controlling coughs and soothing sore throats.
  • Cinnamon has fantastic anti-inflammatory properties.
  • A handful of cranberries and citrus slices add vitamin C, too.

Plus, it tastes and smells amazing.

Refrigerate the Leftovers

If you happen to have any leftover at the end of the day, strain and refrigerate it. You can warm it up again on the stove, in the crockpot, or even in the microwave. Add fresh orange slices and sip away! (Related: 15 Ways to Reuse Tea Bags.)
