Iced Ginger n’ Dandelion Root Tea


This tea is the perfect way to cool off on a hot summer day…Today is a hot one here in Manhattan.  This morning I made a pitcher of Iced Ginger n’ Dandelion Root Tea—such a refreshing way to start off a hot August morning!

I also made a tasty tray of Iced Ginger n’ Dandelion Root ice cubes…these are a flavorful way to add pizazz to any drink or cocktail!

My tea recipe is  low in calories, high in flavor and easy to make.    When I was growing up, we made iced tea with flavorful tea bags and let it sit in the sun for hours.  This recipe is quite unique in that I add a touch of agave nectar, nutmeg, ginger, fresh strawberries and mint to the tea.

Dandelion tea is packed with vitamins A, C, D and B Complex as well as zinc, potassium, iron, manganese, choline, copper, calcium, silicon and boron.  It is an agent for keeping optimum liver, kidney and gallbladder functions.  Moreover, I recommend dandelion root tea to my clients to enhance detoxification as well as to relieve digestive disorders.

  • 1 Tbsp. Fresh Ginger Root
  • Handful of Fresh Mint Leaves
  • 4 Organic Roasted Dandelion Root Tea Bags (let sit for 15 min)
  • 2 Tbsp. Agave Nectar
