Hi lovelies, I trust everyone is keeping well and staying safe and healthy. We all know that starting our day right is good for our body and mind, so I bring you my homemade apple tea with ginger, mint and lemon. I’m not sure if anyone has ever made apple tea exactly like this but I’m currently working with what I have at home thanks to the quarantine lockdown.
This light brew is full of organic ingredients with immune-boosting properties making it an ideal drink to sip first thing in the morning. Additionally, apples have exceptional benefits, and adding ginger, mint and lemon to it makes it the perfect drink to try now. As the coronavirus crisis sadly continues, it is very crucial now more than ever to stay healthy and continue to strengthen our immunity.
Benefits of Apple Tea
Apple is good for your heart, may lower risk of diabetes as well as promote good gut bacteria. Lemon on the other hand is known for it’s incredible benefits. High in vitamin C and natural antioxidant which enhances the immune system. Lemon also has antiviral and antibacterial properties. Ginger, just like mint makes an healthy and delicious addition, helps with digestion and flu. Mint also has antiviral and antibacterial properties and I love it’s outstanding aroma.

Add water, sliced apples, ginger, mint into a small pot. Squeeze half the lemon into pot, while slicing the other half into thin pieces. Simmer for 8-10 minutes covered. Add 1 teaspoon of honey to mug. Finally, strain tea over honey in mug to dissolve and add the other lemon. (You can also add cinnamon sticks if you have any at home)
Voila, homemade apple tea with ginger, lemon and mint. The spicy taste of fresh ginger and soothing effect of mint makes this a truly refreshing drink. If you’re fighting cold and flu or just trying to stay healthy, I highly recommend this.
