The art of living and visuals! I cannot get over the title of my blog as it describes me typically in a nutshell. Though it omits talking about my obsession for perfection and continuous worry about things for way longer than I should.
Enough of the rudeness. How are you today lovely people? How has your day been so far? Mine turned out to be nothing I planned. It was suppose to be a work day for me and then picking my son up from the childminder’s. She unfortunately fell ill today and so I had to cancel work and re-organise the day. I’ve not been the best emotionally but I have been quite productive reading on financial history in the United Kingdom and other interesting and rich blogs. Keep doing the great work inspiring bloggers.
Ok, enough of the ramble. Not going to work today was a blessing in disguise as I got to do one of the things that I consider an ‘art of living.’ The gingerest tea of all! It is just amazing how calm and re-energised I feel each time I take five minutes of my time to savour every sip of this goodness and it is an added bonus to think it does beautiful things for my health. Are you ready? All you need is about an inch and a half of a fresh ginger root. And because, I like to be extra, I pack a punch with an additional tea bag or two. I meant it when I said I wanted it to be the gingerest of them all!
All the ingredients you will need
1 and a half inch of ginger
2 and a half huge mugs of water
1 to 2 ginger tea bags (optional) – You could choose to increase the crushed ginger instead
Half of a fresh lemon – because everything taste better lemony
1 and a half table spoon of apple cider vinegar
1 table spoon of honey in its purest form (or any honey you can find really)
Use a mortar and pestle to crush the ginger after slicing into smaller portions to ease the process. Put the ginger into a kettle. Add tea bags if you wish
Boil the water and pour into the kettle/Jug with the already crushed ginger and teabags. Squeeze the half lemon in and add the apple cider vinegar and honey.
Stir and allow to stand for at least five minutes.
While pouring the tea into the mug, get rid of the crushed ginger of course by using a sieve. Enjoy every sip of it.
Is any one willing to try this? Does it make you feel better once you tried it? I will love to hear all about it in your comments. In the meantime, I’ll catch you later. Thanks for stopping by and I hope this helps anyone out there.
TIP: You could spice things up by adding a cinnamon stick. You can never go wrong with cinnamon (:
