Today, I will teach you how to prepare one of THE best, healthier teas.
Ginger and apple tea has become a staple at home and it’s not only because it’s YES, YUM!
But, also because its healing benefits are outstanding!
If you wanna step up your game in the tea department, then this one’s for you.
Here is a tea recipe that is simply too easy and delicious to resist.
Fun fact: my husband doesn’t’ really like tea – he pretty much drinks it to please me – but he asked to have another cup after I made this recipe! And then another! Trust me. Mind blowing.
First of all the flavor is unique because you are using the apple as the natural sweetener. You can even add a drop of organic honey or maple syrup. Simply perfect.
Second, it’s full of antioxidant properties that boost your immunity and eliminate free radicals from your body. In the middle of a pandemic, those are two things you definitely want to boost.
Wait. It gets better.
Most of the ingredients are healing and vastly used in Ayurveda cooking. But, you know how healing food gets a bad rap and people often think healthy equals bland?
Well, I assure you this ginger and apple tea is the opposite to that: it is immensely flavorful because of all the spices you are adding, plus it contains the sweetness and nice tartness of the apple that makes it pleasant and inviting. The overall combination is great.
One more thing.
I recommend you buy the whole spices instead of in the powder form. This way, they retain more prana energy within them. You can simply use a coffee grinder. Also, if possible choose all ingredients organic.
PS.: If you want the tea to be sweeter but, don’t want to use the honey, then add a little bit more of apple.
