This tea from O-Cha Tea Bar on Homer Street kicks some serious butt when it comes to colds. Opt for this Vitamin C-packed concoction with extra caffeine, or a decaf version too. Whether you live near O-Cha or not, it’s worth making the trip to get this concoction in your system (and get some of their grilled banana bread too, just because).
