As I’ve probably mentioned before, I’m a huge huge coffee person. I don’t often drink tea unless it’s chai and it’s dirty. This tea might have changed my mind! I really need to break the habit of drinking caffeine in the afternoon, so this might be a good swap.
Rooibos tea is naturally caffeine-free and also has all sorts of health benefits. It’s good for the skin, relieves stomach problems, improves circulation and aids a more restful sleep. It sounds like something I should be drinking all the time! It’s super super easy too. I used the same concept I’ve used before with making chai concentrate.
You will need:
5 bags of rooibos tea
A few slices of lemon (I like an orange slice in there too)
2 inch tumeric root (peeled and sliced thinly)
2 inch ginger root (peeled and sliced thinly)
1/3 cup coconut sugar (optional)
Put all of these ingredients in a small pot with 4 cups of water, bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes. I typically don’t like sweetened tea so I omitted the coconut sugar, but I’m sure that would be tasty too if you like that added sweetness.
