fitness tea ingredients
- 1-2 tsp green tea
- 3-4 medium-sized, organic ginger pieces
- 1 tsp turmeric powder
- 1-2 g Ceylon cinnamon
- Juice of half a fresh lemon
To help you choose the type of green tea, we have put together a little guide to preferred types: Best green tea. In the case of an organic product, please do not peel the ginger, as with apples, most of the antibacterial and blood circulation-promoting substances are hidden directly in the peel.
Simply add the lemon juice and cinnamon to the cup before pouring it on.
With turmeric, you can either use the ready-made turmeric powder or cut the fresh root into slices and then rub it.
But Warning : the root stains quite heavily. So that the turmeric is better absorbed by the body, it is advisable to add a pinch of black pepper .
Important with green tea: Boil the water, but do not add boiling water. Just wait a few minutes until our tea water has cooled down to 70-80 ° C and then start pouring it.
Another variant would be to use a kettle to be used with temperature setting. Depending on the type of green tea, 2-4 min brewing time are recommended. However, we leave the ginger in the tea so that it can continue to release its essential oils and gingerols .
