food of the week: tea
so the food of the week, or rather the beverage of the week is tea!i am a tea lover year round but in the summer i find myself drinking even more of it. hot or cold, i will always take some tea! not to mention there are numerous benefits from drinking this luscious treat.
for instance tea..
.. helps boost exercise endurance
.. reduces risk for a heart attack
... has antioxidants meaning it helps prevent several cancers (oral, breast, skin, lung, and the list goes on)
... hydrates the body
in the summer i make a lot of sun tea and i frequently order it out and about.
how to make sun tea at home:
the first: a large serving you can first take a larger pitcher, fill it up with water, place 6 tea bags of choice in the pitcher, and set outside in the sun for a few hours. my thought is the longer the better (and more flavor!)
or the second: individual serving take a few mason jars, fill with water. then add two tea bags to one mason jar. then place a few slices of lemon and sprigs of mint. set outside for a few hours to allow to steep!
if you are looking for a quick on the go tea solution i love starbucks tea options! my favorite tea beverage is a half passion tea (herbal) half green tea mix. its delicious!
