Parts of the country is still experiencing harsh winters, and the rest, remains mellow in comparison. I’ve found the perfect drink for these two conditions.

Though air is nippy, sometimes you just have to sip something tropical in hopes for a better weather. Throw in coconut and everything just feels tropical.

Winter aside, pretty sure I’ll be complaining about summer soon. It’ll be swelteringly hot but I’d take that in a heart-beat, than icy cold weather.

Any day.

If its horribly cold wherever you are, fret not. This warming and comforting sips would put you back into an upbeat mood! Well, at least until summer 😉

Can I pick Spring? I don’t like extremes. In Italy summertime can be scorching hot… if I really have to pick one of the two seasons I’ll go for the sunny one + refreshing ginger tea 🙂

When it’s winter, I want summer. And when it’s summer, I want winter. 🙂 Really what I want is fall/spring all the time! Anyway, ginger and tea is an amazing combo. Good stuff — thanks.

Mmmm, I always make ginger tea when I’m feeling under the weather. I like the coconut and spice additions here. Usually I just steep ginger in hot water 😛

I can certainly relate to the cold weather comments you made! It’s still really cold here in Chicago. 🙁 This tea looks so good. I feel like you can make it in cold or warm weather and it will still be awesome. 🙂

Ginger tea is extremely healthy and provides a wide range of benefits. I usually make it with lemon and Stevia, but your idea sounds better. Great combo!
