Health Tea

March 1st, 2019 Drink of the Week


Sometimes, when the going gets tough and you don't feel like you're firing on all cylinders, it’s time for some warm and soothing home-made tea. This would also be nice cold with ice cubes and fresh lemon sliced into it.


4 cups of water 
1 red apple sliced into quarters
2 cinnamon sticks
8 whole cloves
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1 thumb-sized piece of ginger, peeled and sliced
1 lemon Honey (to taste)


Place all ingredients aside from the lemon and honey into a pot.
Slice half the lemon thinly and add it to the pot.
Squeeze the juice from the other half of the lemon into the mixture.
Bring to the boil then lower the heat, cover and let simmer for 10 mins.
Strain into a mug.
Stir in honey to sweeten (if desired).
