Who’s up for a good tummy slimming and trimming tea? The summer sun is here, finally warming our skin. This tea is just the jumpstart I need to stimulate my body from the sluggish feeling after this long cold spring we had in Northern California.
The lore of ancient Roman’s says they would drink fennel tea to keep trim their waistlines. I suppose they wanted to feel well and look good at the beach too!
Let’s get ready to mix a batch of tea using the wonderful herbs listed below. Why are these herbs in particular good for trimming down? Each one has been chosen for its unique ability to stimulate liver and digestive function, increase circulation, reduce inflammation, water retention and sugar cravings. Use all or only those either preferred or readily available for a unique creation all your own.
Mix equal parts, put in pot and pour boiling water over. Steep for 20 minutes. Sip and enjoy daily.
