(Vegan Tea with Ginger)

Jump to recipe ↓

We all are familiar with the everyday chai in India - Ginger Cadamom Tea, the recipe of which I have already shared. There is also a vegan alternative version of the ginger tea, in case one prefers it light on the stomach. A dash of lemon in your tea and ginger lemon tea is all ready. Ginger lemon tea also makes up as an excellent detox drink that will eliminate all toxins from the body, increase satiety and reduce the feeling of hunger. Ginger and lemon together make a powerful combination that increases our metabolism and burn more calories. Lemon and ginger are also excellent at fighting infections, shortening the duration of cold and cough.
