Who is excited for summer? I know I am. Relaxing days by the pool or beach and evening outdoor parties. However, many are still getting ready for this swimsuit season, and it is the perfect time to get in shape. So you want to know how you can get in shape quickly and effectively.
No worries, I have got you covered. Your favorite beverage will help you out.
So let’s jump into Summer Detox tea recipes.
First up is Dandelion Root Tea
For this recipe you will need some fresh dandelion root and leaves or some dried dandelion leaves or root.
For fresh tea dig up as much of the dandelion root as you can. Then separate the leaves, stems and flowers. Then rinse the root vigorously under cold water. Once you have washed your root, then bring a quart of water to boil in a saucepan. Chop the root into tiny pieces, and placed them into the saucepan. Turn down the heat, cover, and let shimmer for one minute. Then move from the stove and let sit covered for 40 minutes. Then with a tea strainer, pour the tea into a mug, and discard the root pieces. Enjoy. Repeat the same steps for dried dandelion roots, except let shimmer longer, about 5-10 minutes.
