Lemon Ginger Morning Tea

Springtime inspires us to clean out excess—in our homes, lives, thoughts and bodies—so that we may enjoy new growth and fresh starts. We energize our daily routines by shifting our diets to lighter, more invigorating foods and tonics. If you don’t yet start your day with warm lemon water, now is the perfect time to begin! Simply combine purified water, fresh lemon and ginger root. This elixir stokes the digestive fire and is believed to support increased circulation, immunity, mental clarity and a wonderful boost in energy.
