Cultivate your zen moment and start your day with a large Lemon Mint Tea. All you need is a bunch of fresh mint, one Meyer lemon and hot water.
Lemon Mint Tea provides so many health benefits:
- Both the lemon and mint aid digestion and relieve bloating.
- The water and citric acid in the lemon juice help prevent kidney stones.
- The vitamin C in the lemon juice helps create collagen for glowing skin.
- Vitamin C is immune system boosting which helps ward off colds and the flu.
The soothing qualities are equally important. The scent alone of lemon and mint can stimulate your senses and improve your mood and help reduce stress.
Consider starting a Lemon Mint Tea ritual on a weekly basis. Perhaps after yoga, or a spa visit. If you’re already a master of taking time out for yourself, just add tea and enjoy.
Lemon Mint Tea is tasty hot or cold, with sweetener or without, it’s your choice.
Did I mention how refreshing Lemon Mint Tea is? It’s a marvelous beverage, which is why I suggest you take some time to enjoy it. However, I understand that time is not available to everyone all of the time, so if you don’t have one already, get yourself a to go cup.
