Five add-ins to your Morning Boost Tea to help enhance its flavor even more (if possible!) and deliver an additional dose of nutritious goodness.
Tried our Morning Boost Tea and love its refreshing, tropical and fruity flavor? Here’s the reason why: its aromatic concoction is derived from guarana fruit, yerba mate and green tea. Blend it with the other ingredients and you get an energy- and metabolism-boosting brew that is simply delightful.
Our Morning Boost Tea already tastes that good on its own, so what can possibly top that, right? It might be true, but call us perfectionists — we are constantly on the lookout for ways to accentuate the flavors of our teas and help improve your teatox experience.
So here are five ingredients that you can add into your Morning Boost Tea that will satisfy even the most discerning palates. What’s even better is that they are each packed with their very own health benefits too.
Satiate your sweet tooth by adding one or two teaspoons of honey into your Morning Boost Tea. Natural, pure honey is not only a substitute for table sugar and will naturally sweeten your tea with no additives or preservatives, it is also a good source of carbohydrates coupled with antibacterial and antioxidant benefits.
Here’s a tip: Let your tea cool for a few minutes before adding honey to avoid disrupting its natural wholesome benefits.
Lemon is the SkinnyMint team’s favorite ingredient to jazz up the fruity green tea goodness that is our Morning Boost Tea, and we have good reasons why. A study by Purdue University found that “citrus juices enable more of green tea’s unique antioxidants to remain after simulated digestion, making the pairing even healthier than previously thought.”
Vitamin C-rich lemons also act as potent antioxidants that fight free radicals and boost our immunity system. Got a nasty cold? Try this combination.
Naturally refreshing and equipped with calming and numbing properties, mint has been known to aid indigestion and nurse nausea. Also recognized for its antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal benefits, it’s no wonder mint is often utilized in medicinal use.
Thanks to its rejuvenating quality, the best time to add some mint leaves into your Morning Boost Tea is after lunch. Along with our Morning Boost blend, it helps to revitalize noontime drowsiness and soothe a full tummy.
If you prefer a little bit of spice and comfort in your tea, try cinnamon. A natural metabolism-booster, cinnamon is the epitome of sugar and spice, and everything nice. A super anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory antioxidants (phew, what a handful), cinnamon is also a natural blood thinner and works to improve blood circulation.
Expect to be enveloped by a nice warming sensation starting from your tongue down to your body, whether you choose to drink your Morning Boost Tea warm or chilled.
Feeling bloated after a heavy meal? Drop a few slices of ginger into your Morning Boost Tea. Ginger helps to improve digestion and offers relief to a bloated tummy. Also great as a post-workout concoction, ginger relaxes your muscles, allowing them to recover better and faster. This also means that it can be very useful in alleviating cramps during that time of the month. And the best of all? Ginger is a natural fat burner.
If you find that adding ginger is too spicy for you, try complimenting it with lemon for a more pleasing flavour.
