Throat Coat Tea
, by Traditional Medicinals
is the only tea I drink. Trust me, it’s liquid gold to a singer. I was 1st introduced to this tea back in 1991, while attending the Musician’s Institute
, in Hollywood, California
. I was attending an open vocal counseling session, held by Tim Bogert
(Vanilla Fudge, Beck). Tim
asked me to sing, but I declined because I had a cold and my throat was extremely dry. He flipped me a quarter and said; “Run down to the cafeteria and ask for a cup of Throat Coat Tea
on me. Be prepared to sing when you get back.”
So down I went, thinking, “I bet this stuff will taste awful. I know it’s not going to help.” Much to my surprise, it tasted great; very sweet and smooth. About 15 minutes after I returned to class Tim asked me to sing once more. By this time my throat felt much better. The dryness was almost completely gone and the tightness that I had felt in my throat had left. My throat felt relaxed and completely open. I had no problem singing this time.
Throat Coat Tea
isn’t just for singers. If your throat is dry, sore, or slightly hoarse, Throat Coat Tea will help to alleviate the problem. Throat Coat Tea
is caffeine free, and provides a protective coating on the membranes that line the throat. It contains Slippery Elm bark
and Licorice root
. Slippery Elm
is a demulcent
, which basically means that it will soothe sore throat pain. Licorice root
, a natural cortisone, helps to reduce the swelling of the vocal cords. Other ingredients in Throat Coat Tea
that help to soothe the throat include marshmallow root, wild cherry bark, bitter fennel seed, cinnamon bark, and sweet orange peel
Throat Coat Tea has been clinically tested and proven to support throat health. Vocal health is a very important part of singing. I highly recommend this dietary herbal supplement to all singers and speakers.

PS- I personally add extra “boosting” ingredients to my tea such as a Thayer’s Slippery lozenge, a teaspoon of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar, or a shot of liquid licorice, just to give it a little more kick. Or You might double up on tea bags for double potency.
