    1. Hi Yen,

      Although ginger honey tea is good for coughing but not everyone is suitable with it depending on your body natural as ginger is a bit heaty too. Osmanthus is good in a way with cooling effect so if your kid is having dry cough, you can make some chrysanthemum tea with a teaspoon or more of osamnthus too. HTH
