One of my favourite spices to add to cold tea is ginger. This spicy root is chalk filled with benefits your body craves. One of the main benefits to ginger is that it improves the absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients in the body. This makes it easier for your body to act like a sponge and absorb all the rich nutrients’ and vitamins you take throughout the day. It also includes anti-inflammatory properties that aids in relief.
Try teALCHEMY’s Peppermint tea, a mellow vegetal aroma with a smooth, lingering sweet finish. Top it off with grated ginger roots for that spicy and light taste.
Another great leaf to add to your tea this summer is mint. Known for having the ability to freshen breath, mint offers a multitude of health benefits, one being that is helps assist in healthy digestion. Like a cool breeze across a vast ocean, this refreshing green treat also helps alleviate nausea and headaches while improving memory loss. This natural plant-based remedy can be easy to incorporate into your daily lifestyle.
Try teALCHEMY’s Citrus Splash, a refreshing blend of orange and pineapple flavours creates summertime cooler or a wintertime summer reminder. As a garnish, top it off with strawberries and a sprig of mint.
Ginger and mint are amazing when added separately or blended together, but another top-tier treat is the classic, brightly lit yellow lemons.
This vibrant and powerful citrus packs a punch when eaten. It also provides your body with the right benefits to keep you feeling hale and hearty. Lemons are alkalizing for the body and help balance the body’s natural ph levels. Rich in vitamin C and flavonoids, it fights against infections like the common flu and colds.
Try teALCHEMY’s Sweet Bloosom Green, light and refreshing with notes of cherry and rose. Spruce it up with half a lemon wedge.
