Green Tea with Lemon, Ginger and Mint - and a spoonful of honey - has been
my favourite warm drink the past few weeks, like I wrote the other Friday.
It is the season for all sorts of common cold now, and I have experienced that this mixture does not only taste good, but it seems to contain vitamins and other nourishing and strengthening qualities, that has kept me from getting the flu.
Sencha tea has an aromatic and mildly sweet flavor - when brewed only 2 minutes. With longer brewing time the taste gets easily bitter - or if used boiling water. I leave the ginger and mint into the pot, since I like the warm feeling the ginger leaves to my mouth and throat ... The stronger, the better.
After pouring the tea to a cup, I add some honey and squeeze some citron juice to go with ... Voila!
Green tea with lemon, Ginger and mint is a healthy and tasty way to build up your immune system against a common cold ... And a delicate warm drink, that surely will tickle your tastebuds.
... Let's savor every sip!
