This is my go-to detox lemon ginger tea! I call it my detox lemon ginger cleanse! It’s filled with antioxidants, makes me feel ready for the day, plus there’s also cayenne pepper!
The lemon ginger tea is a fantastic recipe and the health benefits to this tea are great! This tea is super refreshing and it can be drunk hot or cold! It is a great way to jump-start the day!
As many of you regulars know, I had a stroke a few years ago. That has led to also being diagnosed with a myriad of things, including an autoimmune disease. I decided to focus on the positive! Making small changes in my diet has really helped me!
I cut out a lot of sugar and I use natural sweeteners. Rarely will I use white flour in cooking. Most importantly, I eat in moderation, exercise regularly, lost 40 pounds and continue to focus on the positive things in my life!
I have to thank the hubs for the addition of ginger and cayenne to this detox tea! He tried different spices to flavor the tea and made me this Detox Lemon Ginger Green Tea while I was recuperating.
Considering his entire recipe index consists of making English Muffin pizza ….the Hubs created greatness! This is now my favorite way to start the day!
One of the things I talk to my wonderful doctors about is the foods, spices, and herbs that really add a nutritional benefit to our daily living.
Benefits of Drinking Detox Lemon Ginger Green Tea:
- Green Tea increases your metabolism, which helps with weight loss.
- For people with high blood pressure and cholesterol, green tea can aid in reducing both ailments.
- I have even heard its great for your skin.
- My doctors and the Hubs turned me onto cayenne pepper, a great detox. It makes you sweat and gets all the yuck out of your system. Also great for congestion so I go a little heavier with it when I feel a cold coming on! Win-win!
- Ginger is medicinal and is just amazing for the body! Anything I can add it to makes me happy!
Combining these ingredients gives us this amazing detox tea!
Can l drink ginger tea cold?
Absolutely! Lemon Ginger Green Tea is awesome either hot or cold! We have it both ways all the time. I keep a cold pitcher in the fridge and we always have hot tea in the morning. I prefer decaffeinated tea as I cannot have too much caffeine in my diet.

Detox Lemon Ginger Green Tea
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.
- 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.
