Sickness has swept thru our house this past week. Complete with the stuffy nose, sneezing, coughing, blahness. I was doing all my normal natural remedies and I also remembered a lady at Starbucks saying they had a tea called MedicineBall and it was perfect for colds.Well, we happen to live next door so I did what any mom would do and I sent a kid to buy me a tea. It was amazing. So delicious and it actually helped my throat and sinuses. It was perfect but it was also 5$ a pop. I’m always on the lookout for deals and how can I make it myself so I got to work and this is what I came up with.
Starbucks Medicine Ball Tea CopyCat
A Feel Good Tea to chase the yuckies away
- 1 cup lemonade or to cut sugar use lemon water
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 teabag green mint tea
- 1 teabag peach tea
- 1 teabag peppermint tea
- honey to taste
Steam the Lemonade and Water. Basically put in a pot until just before boiling. Or for easy peasy you can run thru your coffee maker like I do
Add the 3 different tea bags and let steep for 5-10 min for maximum effectiveness
Add honey to taste
To me, this recipe is feel better perfection. I tasted the same as the one I was sipping on to compare. Now, here’s the real beauty of it. I paid $2.50 for each box of 20 tea bags. 2$ for some lemons. The honey was the most expensive but still, I can make about 20 cups of this amazing tea for about 5$ more than the one cup I can buy at Starbucks. To me, that’s, a win because I am all about saving some money.
