Building up your immune system is a must when winter rolls around and one of the best tricks to have up your sleeve is a soothing cup of herbal tea. These comforting brews not only offer warmth and relaxation on a cold night, but are also packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and other essential compounds to boost your overall health.

Let’s look at a few of our favorite immunity-boosting teas and their key ingredients. 

Rose Hip Immunity Building Herbal Tea

This is a fruity, tangy tea that’s very refreshing and can be sweetened as/if you please. 


  • 1 teaspoon of Rose Hip
  • 1 teaspoon of Hibiscus Petal
  • 2 Whole Cloves


  1. Pour boiling water over the herbs in a heatproof cup.
  2. Let steep for 10 minutes.
  3. Strain and sweeten if desired.

One of the star ingredients in this recipe is rose hips because they’re so rich in Vitamin C. These tiny fruits pack an impressive 2000 milligrams of Vitamin C per 100 grams, which is 30 times more than oranges (and we all equate Vitamin C with oranges right?!). Incorporating rose hips into your daily routine can really help bolster your immune system against cold and flu viruses.

Orange Peel Tea

This tea has a citrusy flavor that’s actually very pleasant despite what you might think! Although it isn’t quite as sweet as an actual orange, it doesn’t have the strong bitter taste you’d expect from peel. 


  • 2 Tablespoons of Chopped Fresh or Dried Orange Peels


  • Boil your orange peels and water in a pot.
  • Let steep for 10 minutes (don’t leave it much longer or it can get too bitter).
  • Strain and add some honey to sweeten it up if you’d like!

Did you know? Orange peels contain nearly twice the amount of Vitamin C as oranges. So it’s a good idea to snack on the peel left in the teapot after your brew if it takes your fancy!

Fall Immunity Tea

If you have some oranges left from your orange peel tea, you can step your tea game up a gear with our fave in-house brew here in Terra Health Essentials.




  • Add all ingredients and water in a pot with 2 drops of Liposomal Curcumin.
  • Let steep for 10 minutes.
  • Strain and enjoy.

Sleepytime Loose Leaf Blend

This is a soothing and relaxing tea blend that combines the floral taste of lavender with the crisp minty freshness of peppermint, or a milder spearmint variation. It will be a little sweeter if you go for the spearmint leaves, so it depends on your preference.


  • 2 Tablespoons of Loose Lavender
  • 1 Tablespoon of Peppermint/Spearmint Leaves


  • Pour boiling water over the herbs in a heatproof cup.
  • Let steep for 5 minutes.
  • Strain and enjoy

Peppermint is a key component in this Sleepytime Loose Leaf Blend, renowned for its cool, minty, and soothing flavor. It not only comforts the senses but also provides antiviral properties that help ward off illnesses. Not to mention being packed with health boosting antioxidants!

It’s Brew Time!

Add these healthy brews into your daily ritual to give your immune system that extra boost it needs this season. Whether it’s the vitamin C-rich rose hips or the soothing peppermint, each ingredient in these teas plays a role in bolstering your body’s natural defenses. And it’s not just about the physical benefits either, is there really anything more comforting after a long day than relaxing on the sofa with a warm cup of tea? It’s cold-weather medicine at its finest, for both the body and mind.
