Being a hot October, cold stuff will be invaluable to cool self from hot Afrikan sun hence the skyrocketing sales in soda, but there is a natural solution. Iced herbal tea. Green tea has been proven by modern-day science to help treat and cure most of the disease we see people struggling with mostly due to the tea’s unique antioxidants. From diabetes, to arthritis, to cancer and depression, green tea helps a whole lot and high temperatures mustn’t deter your from enjoying this amazing elixir.

Lemon juice is also another addition to your health arsenal that has perhaps the most versatility since it can be used to whiten teeth, to heal wounds and also control blood sugar as well as blood pressure. Personally lemons are my favorite fruit, going by my shopping bills, not taste buds and another vital trait that I like about this fruit is how it makes herbs and other not-so-pleasantly-tasting foods taste better. Be it, fresh kale juice, Moringa or herbal green tea, lemon has a rare ability to make these things more palatable therefore you will be consuming them more often with a smile instead of a frown.

Pure raw honey is age old medicine in several cultures around the world, for thousands of years. Real honey contains live enzymes, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other beneficial substances that help keep you healthy, so this drink is a very nutritious and healing rendition of iced tea.
