You can omit the agave nectar in this ginger cilantro tea if you like, but if you have a sweet tooth, then you will definitely want to add a bit of agave, honey, or another natural sweetener. Just remember that if you add agave that you use raw agave nectar as it is healthier for you. Raw agave is the clear agave, which is generally hard to find. Online stores are probably your best bet.
Ginger is very good for the digestive system, and thus a ginger tea after a large meal can help to speed up the digestion of the food. As a result digestive problems such as bloating, cramping and gas, can be relieved naturally.
As for cilantro, it is touted as being one of the best herbs that removes heavy toxins from the body. However, I’m not sure whether it is as effective in a tea or not. I would almost imagine that you would need to consume the whole plant for best results.
1 tbsp Cilantro, finely chopped
1 tsp. Ginger, grated
1/2 tbsp. Raw Agave Nectar (optional)
2 cups Hot Water
Put cilantro and ginger into a tea ball and allow to steep in 2 cups of hot water for about 10 to 15 minutes.
