 3-Place all the orange wedges with their skin in the tea pot.

Warning: -If you don’t have cinnamon sticks, this can be replaced by a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Cinnamon can make you sweat as it stimulates your blood flow! -Never boil honey or pour honey on boiling water! Wait until the tea has cool down a bit before adding honey. Heat can destroy the enzymes and thus, dilute a lot of the medicinal value of the honey.

Extra TCM Tip: Although many people associate honey with being ‘soothing’ for sore throats, it is actually highly astringent and has a ‘drying’ quality. So while it’s great to use honey when you are in the ‘congested’, mucousy phase of a cold for example, or when you have an inflamed throat (without it being ‘dry’), while you are in the ‘dry cough’ stage of a cold, you may want to avoid it temporarily.

健康诀窍

增强免疫力茶泡制方法: 秋天到了,通常季节的交替和到冬天的过度意味着沉闷,缺乏活力,使你容易生病。如果你感觉可能要感冒,我们建议你一天喝一杯我们的增强免疫力茶来增加维生素C的摄入。

需要准备:

  • 1个橙子
  • 丁香
  • 肉桂枝
  • 少量蜂蜜
  • 选择: 姜,有保暖的效果,在寒冷的日子里是个完美的选择。

如何制作自己的茶:

1.将3个丁香和1个大的或者2个小的肉桂枝煮沸。

2.把半个橙子切成几瓣,挤压橙子汁至茶壶中。

3.将所有的橙子瓣连皮放至茶壶中。 4.添加:3个丁香(把丁香摁到橙子皮上,所以在水加热的过程中,丁香不至于掉到茶中),再放上1个肉桂枝。 5.把热水倒入茶壶中,混合直至冷却再加入蜂蜜。 加水:添加一些肉桂粉和另一半橙子,再放入一茶勺蜂蜜

注意:

如果没有肉桂枝,可以用半勺肉桂粉代替。肉桂可以排毒,刺激血液循环。

永远不要加热蜂蜜或者将蜂蜜放到水中加热。必须等到茶凉后加入少量蜂蜜。热量可以破坏酶,从而稀释蜂蜜的药用价值。

虽然很多人喉咙痛会联想到用蜂蜜(是它的抗发炎),它实际上是高度的收敛(这意味着它将水分从组织中吸取了。也就是说它有一个“干燥”的品质)

增强免疫力茶的益处:

  • 增强免疫力
  • 使人精力充沛,刺激血液流动
  • 排毒
  • 消灭细菌,病毒
  • 缓解咽喉肿痛
