Stay Cool With Ginger Ice Tea
Even if you didn’t know about ginger’s awesome anti-inflamatory properties for joint and muscle aches, or about it’s ability to relieve some types of nausea, this spicy, great tasting tea will help cool off your summer.
1/4 inch of ginger root thinly sliced (found in most grocery fruit and vegetable sections)
2 cups water
teaspoon suger, splenda, honey (optional)
lemon or lime (optional)
Boil the water. Add the ginger and simmer for 1 minute. Turn off heat and let cool. Add sweetener at this time if you are using one. Strain out ginger root. Add lemon or lime wedge, ice, and prepare to cool.
