Spiced Honey Peach lemon cold tea

Spiced tea

About:

The warm aromatic flavours of tea have their roots in ancient Ayuevedic tradition of India. This tea can be relished as a black tea or even add milk and relished. The cinnamon clove tea is a natural home remedy for cough and cold. Lime juice is added for the tanginess and if you like to relish the tea with milk lime juice and peach should be avoided.

Health Benefits:

Cinnamon has the ability to lower post-meal blood sugars. In addition, the use of cinnamon at meals decreases insulin resistance and enhances the effects of gastrointestinal hormones responsible for satiety and decreased gastric emptying rates.

Cloves are filled with the essential oil, Eugenol, which can help detoxify the body. Cloves can also soothe abdominal pain, increase circulation, alleviate throat and chest ailments, and most importantly during the holiday season – aid digestion.

Enjoy this aromatic tea.

  4. This sounds delicious. My husband is an ice-tea fanatic. Unfortunately, he’s strictly lemon ice-tea but I wonder if I can get him to try this. If not – more for me! xx
