Honey Mint Tea

The weather is getting hot and humid here, by having a cup of honey mint tea definitely can quench the thirst away. Nevertheless, you can also enjoy an aromatic and soothing tea while enjoying the movie, sandy beach or a book. I have got a weak stomach recently, I found mint is one of the natural remedy of soothing the nervous stomach. Thus, I was tempted to gave it a try, moreover herbs are well-known of their natural healing power.

Mint is well known for its ability to sooth digestive tract and reduce the severity and length of stomach aches. In addition, mint teas and other herbal preparations have shown great promise at easing the discomfort associated with irritable bowel syndrome, and even at slowing the growth of many of the most harmful bacteria and fungi. The well-documented anti fungal properties of mint are thought to play a role in the treatment of asthma and many allergy conditions as well. There are many more benefits of mint and consuming mint here, check out more at this website (reference).

This tea is so easy to prepare, you may serve it warm or chill. It would also be a fast and easy drinks to prepare when you are having cocktail party or any occasions.
