Green Tea Detox Recipe

Prep Time: 5 Min. Cook Time: 20 Min. Total Time: 25 Min.

Ingredients:

  • 15-20 Mint Leaves
  • 5-6 Slices of Fresh Ginger
  • 6 Cups of Water
  • 1/2 Lemon

  • 6 Cups of Water
  • Raw Honey (optional)

What To Do?

Bring 6 cups of water to a boil. Once boiling, add mint leaves, fresh ginger, lemon & green tea. Let steep for 20 minutes. I suggest that you strain the tea before drinking because there will be a lot of loose ingredients floating around. Let cool & drink. You can drink either hot or add a few ice cubes and drink as iced tea. You can also add more lemon and/or honey depending on your taste buds.
