Magic tea I’m obsessed with

So, I recently discovered a new Tea that I am obsessed with.

And it is very simple.

Here it is for all you Health lovers and body conscious people. I created it the other day in a moment of brilliance and haven’t yet fully explored all the health benefits, but given the ingredients, I am sure there are tons, including at least : metabolism boosting, immune boosting, antioxidants, anti bacterial, anti aging helpers to name a few.

Here ya go!!

ingredients:

-fave mug w/hot water
-green tea bag
-half of a small orange
-tablespoon of honey

Put some hot water in your favorite mug.

Steep your green tea (or white tea if you’re a fan!) for no more than a minute. (Green and white teas are very delicate and turn bitter if oversteeped).

While it’s steeping, cut your orange in half and squeeze the juice into the cup. Let a wedge of it swim in the cup for added benefits of the essential oils from the rind releasing into your drink. This is a huge immune helper.

Finish w a spoonful of honey, stir and remove the tea bag and enjoy! What a great and healthy way to start and end your day!!
