How to Make Ginger Mint Tea

If you are feeling a bit overwhelmed this holiday season, or if you’ve been indulging in too many other types of holiday beverages of the adult variety, this simple tea will help you feel better instantly!

Ginger, mint and licorice are all great for our digestive system, and the warm soothing nature of the honey and lemon will make all your winter chills and ills go away. The trick is to boil the ginger for a few minutes to get the full flavor- I learned this trick from an acupuncturist friend who helped us write this post about natural healing for the flu.

Note that dried licorice root is super sweet, so even if you love the flavor, don’t add more than this amount!
