|sweet lemon-thyme tea|
I really enjoy sweet tea and I must admit I thoroughly enjoy Micky D's sweet tea, and since I live in the south the tea here is sweet! (just the way I like it)
But I like the good flavor of sun ripened tea, you know the one that sits out in a glass jug all afternoon basking in the sun. I remember my mom making sun ripened sweet tea, you could see the color of the tea changing as it seeped in the sun.
When I make my sweet tea I like using black tea (sometimes green tea but I 'm focusing on the black teas now)
Tea itself has many good qualities about it, If combined with other herbs and spices you can have a homemade remedy to colds and chills.
Studies show that the antioxidants in black and green teas are highly beneficial to our health.
Black tea not only helps to fight bacteria but also strengthens the immune system.Drinking tea also hydrates the body, and a cup of black tea helps moisturize the skin. Black tea also balances the hormone levels, which fends off stress. Not only does black tea have anti-inflammatory qualities, it also keeps a check on the digestive tracts functioning. It can help reduce stroke risks as it balances the cholesterol level. So that's a lot of health benefits.
