Clove Ginger Honey Tea

Published by mythili at 10:49 pm under Clove,Ginger,Honey

Here is a nice, relaxing, cool drink for summer time.  I was researching about antioxidants the past few days and here is the net net: Tea is your best bet.  Green tea/white tea even better.  Berries are rich sources too but they are seasonal. Cocoa is good too(they say its the best).. but only if consumed dark to benefit from the antioxidants.  So going with the calorie vs. antioxidants ratio, tea is your best bet.

    Good one again :-)

    For the honey, buckwheat honey is rich in antioxidants compared to clover or other types of honey. So using that makes this drink makes it more healthy.

    I made this today but drank it hot. I just used an English breakfast tea bag as that’s what I had on hand. Very soothing when you are sick! Thanks for the recipe.
