Tea Time: Garlic Green Tea
One handy feature on the behind the scenes aspect of this blog is that we can see what kind of search terms people used to find our blog. Sometimes though, people find our blog through search terms for something that we don’t actually have directly on our site. It always makes me a little sad when this happens, thinking about someone coming here and then leaving disappointed. So whenever possible I want to try and remedy that. One search that’s come up a few times is “garlic green tea” or some variation on that. And while we have our regular garlic tea (and also garlic lemonade) recipe, I want to give the people what they’re looking for! So I came up with a garlic green tea recipe as well.
The health benefits of garlic tea were covered in the original post, but if you want a refresher, garlic is good to ingest when you’re sick because it has antibiotic properties and helps support your immune system. Green tea is good for you because it has a lot of antioxidants which helps rid your body of free radicals (which are bad). This recipe is very similar to the original, but does have a couple of minor differences.
Garlic Green Tea:
- 3 cloves garlic, sliced
- ¼ cup honey
- 2 -3 tbsp. lemon juice (depending on preference)
- 1 green tea bag (or loose tea equivalent)
- 1 cup boiling water
While waiting for water to boil combine the garlic, honey, and lemon juice in your mug. Once water is boiling add to the mug and stir well to melt the honey and combine the ingredients. Then add in the green tea and steep for 10 minutes. Remove tea/bag and garlic slices. Drink and feel better.
Note: If you’re worried about the green tea steeping for too long you can easily remove the teabag before removing the garlic slices.
Once you drink your garlic green tea your body will be ready to kick butt since it’ll be full of antioxidants and immune system support.
