If you are looking for a simple cup of tea to kick start your meditation or your day after your morning meditation, then a gentle cup of Citrus Honey Tea should do just the trick. The citrus flavors of orange and lemon invigorate you while the slight bit of caffeine in the black tea gives you just a little nudge without filling your system with a heavy dose of caffeine like coffee might.
Honey is the perfect natural sweetener for this tea, not to mention that all its added benefits for the whole body simply makes it liquid gold. Keep in mind that honey is an excellent source of all-natural energy at just 17 grams of carbohydrates per tablespoon. The sweet nectar is loaded in antioxidants that may help prevent cellular damage and loss within the brain, and anti-inflammatory effects and ability to soothe coughs has led to the belief it can also reduce seasonal allergy symptoms. That makes honey a perfect addition to your tea for this season.
