Why I Love This Recipe

A tea infusion is a concept of pouring hot water over dried herbs, flowers, or fruits, waiting for it to steep so the flavor intensifies, and enjoying it hot or cold!

Lots of teas are caffeine-free and have many health benefits. If you’re a tea lover, you probably already love the concept of tea and infusions.

Tea and infusions are also a good way to detoxify as they have properties that cleanse and remove toxins from the body. The best and most effective way to detox at home is to have a cup or two of infused tea in a day and cut off all kinds of fried, junk food, and alcohol. Increase your intake of fruits, veggies, and whole grains, and let the tea work its magic on your body’s system. The ones that give the best results are infused green tea, dandelion tea, lemon tea, and ginger tea.
