Day 12: Coffee & Caffeine Free
Ginseng, Date & Honey tea. Yea, I said it, Ginseng. My dad’s aunt, who is an eastern herbal enthusiast, gave us a batch of dried Ginseng roots and dates. After our weekend trip, I gave up drinking caffeinated teas altogether and became a herbal ginseng/date tea drinker :o)
Apparantly gineseng and date has healing and detoxifying properties (according to wikipedia). The taste: After brewing the date/ginseng for about an hour, on a low simmer, the date gives off a very sweet, nutty flavor; Ginseng gives it a little kick with it herbal flavor. Overall, I enjoy it…my hubby though, he’s not much of a fanatic but drinks it anyway because he’s so awesome.
Coffee update: It’s quite amazing how I don’t miss coffee at all. Overall, I have a lot more energy and my skin is moist (whereas, coffee/caffeine dried out my skin). I will probably drink coffee, in the future, occasionally, but for now…Cheers!
