Healthy Summer Tea

I truly thought I hated tea until I read about this in a healthy lifestyle book and decided to try modifying it for myself. Be warned that although this tea blend has lots of good stuff in it, my husband has occasionally claimed that I smelled like alcohol while drinking it.

To make this truly refreshing drink- I’ve been guzzling it in this summer humidity- start by placing 8 tea bags in a gallon of water and letting it steep over night. My favorite is Celestial Seasonings Raspberry Zinger.

Once it has steeped overnight, remove the tea bags and add your goodies.

Add the following:

  • 4 TBS apple cider vinegar WITH THE MOTHER. That’s the good stuff. Just shake it up first
  • 4 TBS of pyure stevia based sweetener. I buy mine at Walmart. I try to avoid artificial sweeteners as much as possible and sugar is the devil if you are on an anti-inflammation diet
  • 1 TBS of lemon extract
  • 1 TBS of another fruit extract as desired

Stir well and sprinkle with about a tsp of ginger. Stir again and serve over ice. Gah, I can’t even explain how addicted I have become to this stuff. It just satisfies thirst in a way soda and artificially sweetened diet drinks could just never do.

I hope you like it!
