Traditional Medicinals Organic Throat Coat Tea – Price & Ingredinets Review

This is a product review of the Traditional Medicinals Organic Throat Coat Seasonal Tea. If you’re interested in this tea, chances are it’s not just for the robust herbal flavors this tea offers. You’re probably a singer seeking tools to soothe and strengthen your vocal folds. Or, you’re feeling a bit under the weather with a sore throat and require some TLC from some herbal tea goodness.

Whatever the reason, I’m here to share my thoughts on the tea.

For starters, I’m about 3 boxes into a 6 pack of tea 😲

I got this six-pack from because it was cheaper than buying per unit at my local grocery store. I hadn’t tried Throat Coat tea before this, but I’m a tea fiend, and since I’ve also been on the market for teas that support vocal health, I was committed to the long haul, even if I wasn’t a fan of the flavor.

Review of the Flavor

Thankfully, I quite enjoyed the flavor of this tea. It tastes earthy and sweet at the same time. I love the flavor so much that I’ve had to limit myself to a cup a day to make my supply last.

I think most tea lovers would love the flavor of this tea. It’s both familiar and unique. Contradicting, I know, but try it, and you’ll understand.

People who don’t drink tea might need a bit of an adjustment to the taste. Non-tea drinkers may want more sweetness to their teas, so I suggest adding your favorite drink sweetener until it is flavored.

Ingredients That Are Natural Remedies

The slippery herb elm has been used as a natural remedy in teas and lozenges to reduce inflammation in the throat. The herb licorice root is supposed to numb the back of the throat. And the hard marshmallow root is supposed to facilitate natural secretions that are soothing, softening, and healing.

From my experience, three boxes of tea in, I can attest to these herbal benefits. The first time I had my first cup of Throat Coat was after a particularly difficult vocal lesson. The relief was almost immediate. My throat felt ‘looser’ or more relaxed. Overall, less irritated.

I should also note that I’m an amateur singer who practices 45 minutes daily, five days a week.

Review of the Color … Yes, the Color

While writing this article, I’m sipping on a hot mug of Throat Coat. Mmmmm.

As I looked down at this healing elixir, I thought I’d mention what the color of the tea looks like in case some of you were wondering.

Throat Coat tea isn’t a black tea like earl grey, and it isn’t light like chamomile tea. I’d say it’s a happy medium between the two, somewhere in the middle.

I wanted to include the color of the tea because oftentimes, the color correlates to the number of tannins a tea contains. Typically, darker teas have a higher content of tannins. Consuming drinks with high concentrations of tannins (commonly in dark teas and coffee) can lead to the buildup of tooth enamel which causes tooth staining.

Those who care about teeth color shouldn’t worry about this too much as long as you give your mouth a good rinse after enjoying a cup. This flushes out any of those nasty tannins! Sometimes I’ll forget to swish some water and rinse after a cup, but I haven’t noticed any teeth staining as with black coffee.

How Much did Throat Coat Tea Cost?

As mentioned above, I bought this tea in a pack of six because it was cheaper than buying per unit at my local grocery store. If you do the math, divide my cost ($25.07) over the number of tea boxes (6), and you’ll see that I got these for about $4.17. Most grocery retailers price these closer to $5 a box.

Overall Review of Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat Tea

Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat Tea helps soothe my throat, no doubt about it. On the days when I’ve gone without it, my throat could tell. I don’t treat my vocal folds badly (i.e., loads of dairy or spicy food), but I could tell the difference the tea makes versus missing a day of it.

And since having this tea on hand, I haven’t been sick (knock on wood). But I imagine the same benefits I’ve felt as a singer would also be transferrable to someone sick with a sore throat, cough, or cold.

You can buy a pack of six of the tea on like I did or purchase a single pack at your local grocery store.
