Caffeinated drinks are often dehydrating. When your vocal cords are swollen, inflamed and tender you should opt to drink hydrating and soothing drinks.
Water at any temperature is the best remedy. 💦
Some people find adding a slice of lemon and bit of honey to a warm cup of water to be soothing to their throat and vocal cords. 🍵
Caffeine free teas are another nice option. Avoid caffeinated drinks such as coffee, tea, sodas and chocolate (yes, chocolate is a source of caffeine!) 🍫 - 37 minutes ago
