    Fluids in general are good for colds, so yes it will help.  But there is nothing you can add to water to get better faster. Maybe these ingredients will reduce symptoms (and maybe not).

    Fluids are very important. Things in the tea that could help - caffeine and sugar. Yes, sugar can be bad for you but when you have a cold, your body needs energy to fight the infection. Drink lots of orange juice.
