Ginger Lime Tea
Combining the tangy taste of lime, the floral notes of honey, and the warm spice of ginger, our Ginger Lime Tea will fill you with an energizing sensation. It’s no secret that honey and ginger are chock-full of anti-inflammatory, cold-fighting, and immune system-boosting properties. Why not reap a few health benefits of ginger while sipping your new favorite cup of tea?
Ginger Lime Tea is one of the many recipes that can be fine-tuned to accommodate your unique taste buds. Not to mention, the method is incredibly simple. If you want a sweeter, more nectar-like drink, add an extra spoonful of honey. For a spicier, more warming tea, adjust the amount of ginger you steep.
Most importantly, when making Ginger Lime Tea, you’ll want to keep your heated coffee mug completely covered while you steep the tea for at least 5 minutes before adding lime and honey. For the vibrant flavor of Ginger Lime Tea to make its debut, serve at 130ºF, about 5 degrees lower than the average for other hot drinks. You can easily program this temperature setting on your Ember Mug² via the Ember App. The lower drinking temperature allows for the fruit-forward notes of lime to infuse with the ginger, which creates a mellow, warm, and sweet sensation that will energize your taste buds.
To get the full energizing benefits of this vibrant Ginger Lime Tea, we recommend sipping while listening to its complementary music playlist. This playlist is carefully curated to accentuate the zesty, sweet and snappy tasting notes of Ginger Lime Tea. So grab your Ember Mug, take a sip, and let the taste and sound be your gateway to a refreshing sensory experience.
