You guys know I love tea. And I love lemon in tea, too.
And since you’ve been with me throughout my detox period ridding the heavy metals from my body the last few years, I thought I’d share with you one of my favorite beverages that’s always refreshing and quite tasty.
I created this tea detox recipe a few weeks ago on a Friday night in my Manhattan apartment.
I had just been told that I had to cut out sugar from my lifestyle.
And I almost lost my mind.
I had Candida and it wasn’t fun. So, just like anyone else that is in excruciating pain- you do what you’ve gotta do to heal and help your body get better asap.
So, I purchased a few bottles of purified spring water. A few different herbal and green teas.
A bottle of organic apple cider vinegar.
Fresh, organic cilantro and a whole ‘lotta fresh, organic lemons.
Yep, that’s all you’ll need.
I love tea but I’ve never written about it on my blog, which is kinda sorta crazy since I drink about 10 cups a day.
Don’t look at me like that. I know you like tea, too.
Or some sort of beverage that you drink 10 times a day. (I really hope it’s not soda)… Please tell me it’s not soda.
This is totally a summer beverage your whole family will be loving. Or maybe just you.
As for me, I’m heading downtown to the West Village to soak up the sunshine and read a new book. Of course, I’ve packed two water bottles with this tea to enjoy all afternoon.
Store-bought teas just aren’t the same.
Believe me. You’ll love it.
Here’s to cooling off the heat wave wherever you are this week.
