Lemon & Ginger Tea

Tea is a common or household name in every Indian house. At my place only black strong tea, with a dash of milk and sugar is consumed in mornings and evenings! All the tide moving in healthy consumption, me and hubby took a step towards switching over to health tea!

The range of chamomile tea (acidity regulator), green tea ( for cholestrol control), lemon and ginger tea ( for good digestion) are now lined up in our pantry and being consumed too!

Wikipedia says - "There is archaeological evidence that suggests that tea has been consumed for almost 5000 years, with India and China being two of the first countries to cultivate it. Green tea has been used as traditional medicine in areas such as India, China, Japan and Thailand to help everything from controlling bleeding and helping heal wounds to regulating body temperature, blood sugar and promoting digestion."

Ingredients :

200 ml drinking water

Boil the water over gas stove or microwave on high power for one minute.
