Delicious tea for any time of day - lots of good flavor and even better if you add a little bit of your favorite juice concentrate for a special treat.

Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A (3 beneficials)
  • Type AB (2 beneficials)

  • Beverages

  • 12 cups filtered water
  • 7 thin slices fresh ginger
  • peel of 1/2 fresh lemon
  • 6 organic green or white tea bags
  • 1 green/raspberry tea bag
  • 2 rose hip tea bags

How to make it:
  1. Put water, fresh ginger and lemon rind in large pan. Bring almost to boil.
  2. Remove pan from heat.
  3. Add all tea bags and let steep for 2 1/2 minutes
  4. Remove and squeeze tea bags
  5. After another 5 minutes remove the slices of ginger and squeeze through a garlic press to get the ginger juice into the tea.
  6. Then discard the ginger pulp.
  7. Remove the lemon peel and discard.
  8. Enjoy!
    This can be drunk hot or cold and can be stored in glass jars in refrigerator and reheated as needed. You can fill a 16 o container with about 14 oz of the tea and add juice concentrates for a take-along refreshing drink to sip during the day.
