Although a hot cup of ginger tea does not seem very tempting during the hot summer months, it certainly is very beneficial to the body. It is also very easy to prepare! All you need is finely chopped ginger, honey, tea leaves of your choice and finally a few tablespoons of lemon juice or milk, depending on your preference. Strain the ginger pieces with the tea bag in the water and season with a dash of lemon juice and honey.
Here are a few amazing benefits when drinking ginger tea during the summer:
2. Stimulates Appetite: You may have noticed an unusually low appetite during the summer season. If you have not felt so hungry lately, eating ginger tea could only help this appetite.
3. Relieves Stress: Due to the strong taste of ginger and its healing properties, ginger tea is able to effectively counteract stress at the end of a long and tiring working day.
4. Aids Weight Loss: Summer is the best season to lose weight as we tend to sweat more often and expend more energy on everyday tasks. Add ginger tea to the mixture and you have the formula for rapid weight loss. All you have to do is drink ginger tea 15 minutes before meals to speed up the burning of fat.
5. Protects the Skin from Infections : Ginger has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that make it a great skin conditioner. Ginger tea can protect your skin from infections and give you a natural summer glow!
If you do not like the idea of drinking a cup of steaming and strong-tasting ginger tea, you can simply add ginger juice to your lemon peppermint tea cooler and reap the benefits of this wonderful spice!
