Harmony in a Cup: Exploring the Wellness Elixir of Green Tea, Lemon, and Ginger Infusions"

My love of tea over the years turned into an amazing venture and I created my own tea line called Nomu Organic Herbal Tea! I am always experimenting and drinking tea and I especially love sharing my tea with others! As I became more familiar with various types of teas, I noticed many people drink tea without really understanding the ingredients and why the benefits are so important to their overall health.



Today I want to share with you three flavors that are found in various tea recipes – what are those ingredients and the benefits to your health.  I will start with the 1st ingredient, which is foundational to many teas, Green tea. Green tea is a type of tea that is made from Camellia sinensis leaves and buds, which have not undergone the same withering and oxidation process as black tea. Known for its rich antioxidants and potential health benefits, green tea has a distinctive flavor and is widely consumed worldwide. There are also varying levels of caffeine in tea and most often, especially in my recipes, I use green tea that does not have caffeine.


There are so many benefits of Green tea, it is packed with antioxidants and provides a natural boost to the immune system, helping to fend off illnesses and promote overall well-being. When green tea is infused with other flavors, like lemon and ginger, the combo offers delightful and healthful beverage that goes beyond just a soothing sip.


Ginger is one of my all-time favorite ingredients to use in a tea recipe. Ginger is a flowering plant whose rhizome, commonly referred to as ginger root, is widely used as a spice and for its medicinal properties. Known for its unique pungent flavor, ginger has been employed in various cuisines and traditional remedies for centuries. Adding ginger to tea not only imparts a warm and spicy flavor but also brings a host of health benefits. Ginger is renowned for its anti-inflammatory properties, aiding in digestion, relieving nausea, and promoting overall digestive wellness when incorporated into tea, making it a flavorful and healthful addition to your daily routine. I use ginger in most cooking recipes to bring a lovely flavor to vegetables, beans and even fish.



Did you know lemons contain more sugar than strawberries, challenging the common perception of lemons as solely sour fruits? It is for sure not sugar that lemons offer a tea recipe - Lemon flavors are characterized by their bright, citrusy notes that add a refreshing and tangy element to a cup of tea. The zesty and aromatic qualities of lemon can elevate the overall taste profile, imparting a burst of vitality to any dish or beverage. Fresh lemon juice is a nutritional powerhouse, rich in vitamin C, which supports immune health, collagen formation, and aids in the absorption of iron from plant-based foods. Additionally, the citric acid in lemons can help with digestion, and their antioxidant content contributes to skin health and overall well-being. Often, I will enjoy warm water with lemon to start my day to take in the burst of flavors while knowing lemon is so good for my health too!


The magic to making a good cup of tea is understanding how to combine the ingredients just right. When green tea, ginger and lemon fused together so many good things come to life! Green tea offers a distinct earthy flavor but also introduces a wealth of antioxidants and potential health benefits, while the addition of lemon adds a zesty twist, contributing not only to the taste but also bringing a dose of vitamin C, known for its immune-boosting properties. Meanwhile, ginger introduces a spicy kick and boasts anti-inflammatory and digestive benefits, making this trio a powerful combination for holistic health.


One of the key benefits of this amalgamation lies in its potential to support weight management. Green tea is renowned for its metabolism-boosting properties, and when combined with the digestion-enhancing effects of ginger, it creates a synergy that aids in maintaining a healthy weight. The zesty lemon complements these effects by adding a refreshing touch to the palate, making it an enjoyable choice for those looking to incorporate a weight-conscious beverage into their daily routine.



I love that the trio of green tea, lemon, and ginger contributes to mental alertness and relaxation in my body. Green tea contains L-theanine, an amino acid that promotes a calm yet focused state of mind. The addition of lemon and ginger adds a sensory dimension to the experience, invigorating the senses and creating a soothing ritual that can be especially beneficial during moments of stress.


Embracing the combination of green tea, lemon, and ginger, and other flavors, into your daily tea routine will not only tantalize your taste buds but also offers a plethora of health benefits, offering a holistic and refreshing choice for your overall well-being. Thanks for sharing my love of tea and the journey of Nomu tea!
