Orange, Ginger, and Lemon Grass Iced Tea



This refreshing Orange, ginger and lemon grass tea is not only refreshing and perfect to enjoy when it’s hot, it is full of antioxidants which is good for your health. Lemon grass aids digestion, regulates high blood pressure and it helps to boosts metabolism and burns fat. In addition ginger too has many healing properties and it’s beneficial to you in many ways. You can read about the benefits of ginger in a special ginger post I wrote recently.

This refreshing tea is great for combating heat stroke too, the vitamin C in the oranges is good for the body and to help boost the immune system. 

Although I have served this tea iced it can also be served warm in the cooler months.
