Best Detox Lemon Ginger Green Tea

A tasty green tea that has so many health benefits! Filled with antioxidants from the green tea, ginger, and cayenne pepper


  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tea bags green tea
  • large lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
  • ⅛ – ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon raw honey note 1


In a teapot or saucepan, over medium heat combine the water, green tea bags, lemon juice, chopped ginger, ground cayenne pepper, cinnamon, turmeric, and honey or agave.

Bring to a boil, turn heat down to simmer so flavors blend, about 5 minutes.

Pour into mugs. Can drink hot or refrigerated for later.


Note 1: Use sweetener of choice or none as I do!

This is our go-to tea! I tend to use loose tea or dried flowers to make my tea. I use a tea ball to hold the herb. Regular green tea bags will work also!

Keep it Vegan by either using Agave. Test the tea, you may not need a sweetener.  Lately, I don’t sweeten at all.
