Inflammation is at the root of so many health problems, including allergies, joint pain, gut issues, and autoimmune conditions. The good news is that you can keep inflammation to a minimum with tweaks to your lifestyle, primarily with diet and exercise. There are lots of foods, (including spices), that fight inflammation, and many of those foods are easy to consume in the form of tea.

This particular recipe is made with black tea, which is high in antioxidants, and blended with inflammation-fighting spices, all topped off with fresh, zesty oranges. Fun fact: energizing black tea can help control sugar balance naturally. Some of the spices that we're using in this recipe are ginger and turmeric. Ginger is one of my favorite botanicals to use for natural pain relief, and it is also so helpful for pain and inflammation in the digestive tract. Turmeric not only relieves inflammation; it also aids in the breakdown and metabolism of protein and fats. Cardamom is great for relieving gas and bloating, and cinnamon has been used to control cholesterol and blood sugar.
Sounds super healthy, right? So, ditch the soda, and let's head over to the kitchen to brew some inflammation-fighting iced tea!
Note: you can make your own blend of black tea (Darjeeling, for this recipe) and spices, or you can use Lucky Morning Spice, which already contains the spices, and is ready to go. I have included both versions for you.

To prepare version one using Lucky Morning Spice tea, you will need:
Steep the Lucky Morning Spice and ginger root in the hot water for 1-3 minutes
Strain out the tea leaves and ginger, and chill the tea
Strain out the tea leaves and spices, and chill the tea in the refrigerator until cool. If you're adding sweetener, do that now
Fill a tall glass with ice, and pour in the tea
Grab an orange and squeeze some fresh juice over the top of the tea, and garnish with an orange round and cinnamon stick
To make version two using Darjeeling black tea, you will need:
In a small saucepan, place the spices and ginger in the 2 cups of water, and simmer, covered, over low heat for 5-10 minutes.
Remove from heat.
Add the Darjeeling tea leaves, and steep for 1-3 minutes. Set your timer to avoid over-brewing it or it will get bitter (click here to learn how to avoid making bitter tea)
Strain out the Darjeeling tea leaves and spices, and chill the tea in the refrigerator until cool. If you're adding sweetener, do that now

Your website is so nice. And I love your teas and all the variety and recipes, but can you come up w/ a recipe for bloating? What about a mild laxative? I’d rather drink a wonderful tea than take anything OTC. Stay well!
