When the weather turns colder again and the cold and flu start showing their heads again, it's good to have a little immune system boost. What better way than a nice cup of tea?
Green tea has been known to reduce cholesterol as well as reduce the chance of getting cancer. It also has anti-bacterial properties which help prevent food poisoning and tooth decay. And.. green is my favourite colour.
If you have a green tea with ginseng like me, you might also like to know that ginseng is able to reduce stress levels. It also makes you feel less tired and helps fend off a cold or the flu
Honey gives an immediate energy boost as well as a slow, sustained one. It also has antioxidant and anti-bacterial properties. It's a golden, sweet, yummy immune system boost.
Lemon is full of vitamin C and does good things for digestion and works great against nausea. Did you know the Romans used lemons to cure various types of poison? It may be sour, but add some honey and you've got superpowers in a glass.
Choose a tallish glass and boil enough water to fill it.
In the meantime, squeeze out half of your lemon in the glass and add the teabag.
When the water boils, poor it in to the glass and let it steep for a minute or two.
Remove the teabag and add the honey. Stir, stir, stir! If it's still too sour for your taste, add some more honey.
Enjoy your immune system booster tea!
