Hot Green Tea with Ginger Recipe

When you're a busy woman on the go, it's important to carve out times in your day to nurture yourself, body and soul. Green tea is rich in catechins, which are a type of antioxidant. (Antioxidants help protect you from cellular damage caused by free radicals.) There has been extensive research conducted on green tea and its many health benefits. 

According to research, health benefits of green tea include:
- improved blood flow 
- lower cholesterol
- stress reduction
- the potential for cancer prevention
- antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antimutagenic, antidiabetic 

I like to make green tea at home and add dashes of other items that have health benefits, such as ginger and cayenne pepper. Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties and has been shown to aid with nausea, pain reduction, cardio-vascular health and digestion. Here is my recipe for hot green tea with a twist:

Green tea
Cayenne pepper
Lemon juice

Boil some water and steep your green tea bag of your choice. Add a splash of lemon (I like a lot of lemon, so I might squeeze half a lemon in my tea.) Add a dash of powdered ginger, a dash of cayenne pepper, a dash of cinnamon, and a dollop of honey. Stir and adjust to taste. Enjoy!
