"To assemble tea is an art, to enjoy it ..." The end of year celebrations are over, the feasts are tasted. It is said that "a good meal softens the spirit and regenerates the body. From its abundance flows a warm benevolence. "

Why not make a little detox cure in January to start the year 2018 healthily?

So I go to "L'Epicerie" of Niort, at Vanessa Brard, who warmly welcomes me to talk about her angelic detox tea, ideal recipe after holidays.

"The angelica tea was created in 2007 for the Carrefour des Métiers de Bouche" explained Vanessa, which brings together all the professionals of the food trades: cooks, restaurateurs, coffee makers, hoteliers, butchers, delicatessens, fishmongers, bakers, pastry chefs, confectioners, chocolatiers, ice cream parlors, sommeliers, wine merchants, grocers.

Vanessa does not create, she assembles the different raw materials to compose her angelica detox tea recipe. The proportions are obviously kept secret.
Boil water to 185° F. At the time of service, a few tips: 1 teaspoon per cup. Let infuse 4 to 5 min. For the greediest, a little lemony sweetness will perfectly accompany the hot drink at tea time.
Packaging side: a metal box or a paper bag will be ideal, all that is tea is protected from moisture, light and dry, to maintain the taste of flavors.

Angelica green tea, apple, honey, peppermint

Side benefits natural: It promotes digestion, perfect for the hearty meals after the holidays, it cleans the digestive system and brings tone!
