Orange Spice Tea: Your Immune Boost


Orange Spice Tea: Your Immune Boost-

Orange Spice Tea is super easy to make and relaxing to drink. I mean, if you can boil water and peel oranges, you are good to go. It’s that simple. And that spiced orange flavor is so calming.

Everyone in the house has a cough and my husband and I have head colds. So things feel a bit miserable at the moment. I think a big part of eradicating a cough is keeping the throat moist. When one coughs, it dries the throat and consequently irritates it. Sipping tea soothes all that irritation. Believe it or not, I do buy some tea. (Though I brew a lot myself.) Anyway, most of that tea doesn’t have much of a flavor. This tea, however, is full of pleasant flavors.

Orange Spice Tea

Put four cups of water on to boil. Then prep your oranges. I just used my carrot peeler. You just need a couple oranges. When your water is boiling, put the orange peels in, along with 2 cinnamon sticks and ten whole cloves. Add 1/4 cup of sugar. The orange peel leans on the sour side.


I let it all steep together in the pan for 5 or 6 minutes. Then you just strain it and serve it.

All those flavors together just soothe the throat and are likely to put you to sleep. So save this tea for home. Where the orange flavor with its hint of cinnamon and cloves can reach its full potential.

My Final Thoughts…

The orange has so many amazing benefits, you can read my post here. At times, it seems this amazing piece of fruit is so common, we may have missed of its benefits. Or perhaps, never even knew them. Did you know that not only does it boost that immune system, it also helps you lose weight?

This is January, the month we all think about health more. Weight loss is often a New Year’s resolution. How are you doing with that? If you want a little different spin than this tea, you can try this Orange Peel Tea.
