1lemon[ Slice lemon in half. 1 half slice it further into 4 thin slices. Keep other half for later. ]
15 - 20mint leaves
2tbspgreen tea loose leaf
Peel ginger, crush it lightly and slice it into thinner pieces.
Combine the ginger and mint (I like to muddle the mint a bit while in the saucepan) in a large pot or saucepan with water and bring it to a boil on high heat. Turn the heat to low and let it simmer for 15 minutes.
Remove from heat. Add green tea loose leaf and squeeze 1 half of the lemon in. Let steep for at least 3 minutes.
Strain and serve with slices of lemon and a bit of honey.
This recipe is for a large amount because personally, I like to store this detox drink recipe for all day use —1 cup for sipping in the morning while it's hot, and the rest stored in a large mason jar in the fridge to be used in a water bottle during my morning jogs (letting it cool down and adding a few ice cubes in).
