Garlic is well-known for its numerous health benefits – from its antibacterial and anti fungal properties to its ability to treat high cholesterol, heart disease, and high blood pressure. Why wouldn’t you use it in a tea?! Let’s get right to the nitty gritty.
2-3 large cloves garlic, crushed (let sit for 5-10 to let the allicin develop)
1 cup water
juice of 1/2 small lemon
1 tsp raw honey
