October Tea of the Month: Organic Green Tea with Fresh Ginger, Raw Honey and Lemon

(November 2010)


Green TeaAutumn is associated with the metal element, which is connected to the lung and large intestine energies in the body. Teas focused on moistening and improving digestion work to enhance these energies and are most appropriate for this time of year. Green tea provides warmth and the perfect cup of defense against cold/flu invasion as it helps to rid the body of unnecessary toxins.
