Detox Ginger and Turmeric Tea

makes one 6 ounce tea

Happy 2015, guys!  How was your year?  What are you looking forward to this year?  What are your goals/resolutions?  One thing I can be pretty sure of is that we have all been treating ourselves to mass amounts of cookies among other treats.  If you haven’t, then I’m sorry because that is what December is all about!  But, I feel like I need a bit of a detox to start the year off right.  Let me tell you, this drink will do the trick.

While I was drinking this tea I could feel it’s heat and spices washing away all the overload of all things food.  It’s good.  It’s spicy.  It’s cleansing.  You should drink it now!  Plus, you might just have everything you need to make this dandy drink right in your house.

Drink this right when you wake up to start off your day right!

Here’s to a healthy new year!
