Winter Warming Chamomile and Vanilla Lemonade
A simple warming drink made with our Chamomile, Vanilla and Manuka Honey tea, to help hydrate and relax you during the winter, especially after some time outside in the cold. This warming drink can also calm and soothe digestion.
Tips for the doshas :
Too much of the sour taste is aggravating for pitta and kapha dosha types, so if you’re dominant in these doshas, consider reducing the lemon to a quarter. The sour taste is helpful for vata types, so you can be more liberal with the lemon juice. Ayurvedia recommends we mainly drink liquids at room temperature or above during the cooler months.
