Green Tea with a Little Zing


Green tea is considered one of the world’s healthiest drinks due to high amounts of antioxidants. The natural chemicals called polyphenols give green tea its anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic effects. 


This recipe combines the health of green tea and the yummy zing of ginger.


I absolutely love the taste of ginger! Not only does it have a zesty or spicy flavor, but it also has many health benefits. It’s a great reliever of “stomach problems,” such as motion sickness, morning sickness, upset stomach, gas, and nausea. Other great benefits include:

  • Reduction of pain and inflammation, especially for arthritis, headaches, and menstrual cramps
  • Prevention of colds
  • Inhibitor of certain bacteria, such as Salmonella
  • Reduction of intestinal spasms
  • Possible prevention of stomach ulcers caused by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin and ibuprofen
