The Power Tea

Here's a little something to keep you warm in the cold weather season:)
I call this "The Power Tea" because that's exactly what it is when we start to feel run down.

This is how I make it:
2 cups water
1 heaping Tablespoon of raw honey
a handful of cranberries
4 thin slices of ginger root
1 slice of lemon

Now, at first, you're probably thinking..."geez, that's a lot of ingredients for just two cups," but I promise, it's tastes delicious. Besides, if it's too strong for your liking, you can always dilute it with more water.

Place all ingredients in the water and bring it to a boil.
Stay close by because as soon as it's ready, it will boil over. When it does, remove it from the heat and cover to let it steep for 5 minutes. That's it!

 Ginger is very spicy & alone with honey, makes a great tea. Cranberries are packed with Vitamin C and antioxidants, so buy as much as you can now, and stick them in the freezer. Some say they can last for a year, but I stick to 6 months:)

Check out that color!
You can always add some ice to keep it as a cool drink too!

Hope you enjoy!
