Your cup of Immuni-Tea Recipe
Known throughout history for its medicinal properties, tea is THE soothing, immunity-boosting beverage you need this season.
Did you know?
The most widely consumed beverage in the world today started out as a tonic.
Tea originated in China and was consumed only as medicine until the sixth century. But as its popularity as a mild stimulating beverage spread, tea specialists and sommeliers began to experiment with several varietals; brewing green, white and black teas into decoctions of varying strengths. Tea drinkers began to infuse spices, fruit peels and roots such as peppermint, orange or ginger into their cuppas for added flavour and health benefits.
Although its medicinal benefits are not widely known today, tea is more than just a 4 o’clock pick-me-up. It’s filled with powerful antioxidants, which builds your body’s immune system and regulates the functioning of cells.
