Detox Tea RecipeNovember 19th, 2018
Whether you overate at Thanksgiving (we’ve all been there) or just need a new pre-bedtime ritual, this tea may help calm your tummy. Start by simmering Flora’s Flor-Essence tea—an herbal supplement blended with organic burdock root, kelp, and red clover blossom—with water. Keep the concentrated base in the fridge for up to three months, and when it’s time for tea, just add warm water, fresh ginger, and honey for a hot, comforting cup.
