Freshen up with this dynamic ‘three way’ citrus explosion that tastes as good as one might
expect and also, if you are deprived of the Caribbean sunshine in the middle of winter, helps to
shore up your defences by giving a substantial vitamin C boost.
All three fruits can significantly facilitate the absorption of iron into the body and thus increase
your strength. But lime, in particular, can also improve well being because of its potent soothing
properties, above all an ability to reduce the intensity of headaches and provide much needed
relief for anybody suffering from other minor complaints such as catarrh and generally raise
energy levels when one is run down.
Lemon works in a similar way and is tremendously effective in clearing a blocked nose, sore
throat and the general feeling of stuffiness that often accompanies the worst of cases of
flu. Needless to say the freshness and zest that are associated with the fruit act can act as a
boost to any flagging spirit, particularly in the midst of a particularly sharp drop in temperature
during the arduous winter months.
However, even if one doesn’t use this tea as a tonic it provides an absolutely gorgeous blend of
flavours that is guaranteed to put a very big smile on your face. Together the three fruits create
an intense tingling sensation that lingers long after the last sip. What makes the tea very
appealing is the natural zest of the citrus, so bright and sharp it is guaranteed to pep you up in
those moments when you feel the need for a little lift. In addition to the central ingredients there
are green tea fannings, which count towards the recommended daily intake of greens as well as
bringing a distinct smoothness to the flavour of the blend. A delight in more ways than one.
