This stuff is like gold around here.
When it’s gone I have to rush out and get more. I’m addicted. Equate it to your morning cup of coffee, it’s just part of my routine.
I started drinking homemade ginger & lemon tea awhile back as a way to detox and I discovered that ginger tea not only helps flush out toxins but it settles an upset stomach and fights inflammation. You know the puffy, tired, over-fed & under-exercised feeling when you return from vacation or weekend trip? A mug (or two) of this stuff always helps me rebalance and feel great! I quickly learned that I need to pack a few pouches in my carry on when I travel.
I drink homemade and store-bought versions of this tea. Both are fantastic but potent, if you need to tone it down, you can add a bit of honey.
I often recommend this tea (or a more mild peppermint) to friends and I always hear good things. It’s definitely something that will have a place in our pantry for a long time!
