GINGER LEMON HONEY MINT TEA
I’m just support from New York City for the kids’ spring break, and it was like gulp at the spring of life for a few glorious days – food and food, miles of walking, brisk patent springtime and long-missed friends. My soul is refill.
I don’t know but it’s the travel home or just the allergic reaction season, other than we’re a little sniffly-sneezy this week. At the finish our trip I had a spicy, steaming cup of carroty, lemon, honey and make tea (really a tisane if you want to get technological, since there was no actual tea in it), and before a week of NY pizza, bagels and pastrami sandwich, the fresh citrus and ginger rushed in like a tingly impervious boost.
I’ve made many clean herbal tisanes with mint, lemongrass or lemon verbena after I’ve grown them. clean ginger tea has always been a favorite of mine, and I often create a hot lemon-honey drink for sore throats. But I love the idea of putting lemon, ginger, mint and honey every together in a warm wellness cocktail.
clean lemon juice has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits, as in good health as a load of vitamin C. Ginger and mint are outstanding for digestion, and ginger has extra anti-inflammatory agents. Even honey is other than empty sweetener – it brings a wealth of antioxidant, antibacterial and probity properties as well.
This isn’t no powdered vitamin drink. Absorption is forever better from real foodstuff, and nature’s food has compounds that be not quantified by percentage numbers on a nutrition label.
Plus it’s a luxury to drink. And a toasty beverage always mellow me out.
I like to brew up a bigger batch of gingery water so that I can create a cup of this tea anytime. I used slices of carroty here, which I had stashed in the freezer, but its other effective to chop up the ginger or grate it. (And apparently you can exasperate frozen ginger! I’ll try that after that time.)
