July 28, 2021

Traveling can be a wonderful experience, yet it can also be taxing on the immune system. From sharing close quarters with strangers in airports, planes and buses to disrupted sleep and nutritional routines (not to mention the stress of long travel days), it is no wonder the body’s natural immunity may become weakened while traveling.

Sipping good-for-you immunity tea is one way to give your immune system a boost  while traveling.* Below, discover five delicious and healthful immunity teas to sip before, during and after your next getaway. 

1. Organic Immunity SuperGreen Tea 

For thousands of years, people in Japan and China have sipped green tea to stay healthy. The antioxidants found in green tea leaves have long been praised for their ability to improve overall wellness, including immunity.* Organic Immunity SuperGreen Tea contains both premium Japanese matcha and green tea leaves for an intensely flavorful infusion. 

This organic immunity tea also contains a blend of potent herbs: echinacea, which is regarded as an immune stimulant, and elderflower, known as “nature’s medicine chest.”* A hint of orange adds a crisp citrus flavor to this pleasant floral blend. 

2. get wellness® – No.11 Herb Tea for Immunity

Organic rooibos serves as the base of this best-selling immunity tea, which was featured on the NBC Today Show as part of their “What’s Hot in Health” segment. This healthful blend of echinacea, elderberries, astragalus and ashwagandha (also known as Indian Ginseng) was formulated to help fortify the body’s defenses.* 

Accented with the spicy flavors of cardamom and clove, Get Wellness packs a pleasant, aromatic punch. Steep and sip before heading to the airport, or bring a tin on your flight to keep your body’s defenses strong.* The Get Wellness stackable tin comes with three perfectly-sized tins for packing in your carry-on.

3. get protected® – No. 24 Herb Tea for Defense

Whether based in fact or myth, the tale of the four thieves who survived the Black Plague by protecting themselves with a blend of herbs and spices is indeed impressive. According to legend, the thieves packed a special blend of spices into beak-like masks, which they wore as they robbed the infectious sick and the dead. Miraculously, these thieves never became ill.

Inspired by this historic tale, Get Protected tea contains anti-inflammatory cinnamon and clove, throat-soothing eucalyptus, cleansing lemon and calming rosemary. We have added orange peel and organic rooibos to round out the flavor for an uplifting cuppa.

4. Organic Elderflower SuperHerb® Tea

Elderflower and elderberry have been used for centuries as herbal cold remedies.* In Medieval Europe, traditional healers and herbalists used all parts of the elder tree to ease sinus congestion and coughs.*

Organic Elderflower SuperHerb Tea is made from 100% organic elderflower blossoms harvested from a small family farm in Albania, blended with organic elderberry flavor and organic green rooibos. Savor the floral, fruit and subtle vanilla notes as you sip.

5. Honey Ginseng Green Tea

Panax ginseng (also called Asian ginseng) is an adaptogenic herb that has been used in traditional Chinese healing for over two-thousand years. It boasts a high concentration of antioxidants, which may support immunity and reduce inflammation.* 

In this delicious and healthful infusion, we have blended panax ginseng with eleuthero, linden flowers and fine green tea leaves from China. This palate-pleasing green tea is finished with a touch of natural honey flavor for mild sweetness. 

Sip any of these immunity teas on-the-go by packing several tea bags and a travel mug in your carry-on. Savor sip by sip as you support your body’s natural immunity.
