A stuffy head, sore throat, and 10 degrees high temperature calls for some tea! I am typically not a tea drinker, but I was looking for relief coupled with enjoyable flavors. The grapefruit component adds a sense of being full. Perfect for someone looking to curb extra snacking while being stuck indoors. I added some coconut oil because it has wonderful antibacterial, antifungal, and anitmicrobial properties. We don’t have time to get sick!
It is 9am or I would totally add a shot of bourbon to this amazingly delicious, flavorful warmup!
Here is the recipe…
Spiced Hot Grapefruit Tea
1 cup water
1 grapefruit juice, freshly squeezed
2 cinnamon sticks
A Pinch of cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. coconut oil
(honey, sliced grapefruit, cinnamon stick for garnish)
Heat water and grapefruit juice with cinnamon sticks, cayenne pepper, and cloves.
Submerge teabag or your favorite loose leaf tea preparation and let steep for 4 minutes.
Add honey to taste, coconut oil, sliced grapefruit and a cinnamon stick for garnish.
