Recipe: Revitalizing Spice Tea

This revitalizing tea is a unique blend of warming herbs that have invigorating properties while leaving the house smelling great while you cook it. Ginger helps improve digestion and reduce nausea, while cinnamon improves circulation and may comfort coughs. Cardamom helps aid digestion, and peppermint freshens the breath.



Prep Time:

15 minutes


  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger (peeled and minced small)
  • ½ teaspoon organic orange peel
  • 1 cinnamon stick chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom seeds
  • 1 peppermint tea bag
  • 1 slice of lemon


  • Place the water and the ginger into a small saucepan. Heat the water until it’s about to boil. Reduce heat and add remaining ingredients except lemon.

  • Steep the spices for 5-10 minutes.

  • Using a strainer, pour tea into two mugs, making sure to remove all the spices.

  • Finally, squeeze lemon into each mug and stir.
