Simple Detox Tea
Simple Detox Tea
Detox tea. It sounds so scary! Like the tea is going to taste terrible and leave you with a bitter taste in your mouth. And do a number on your digestive system. But this one won't. It's a gentle detoxifier - great for counteracting a late night out, food splurges, detox cleanses, or upset tummies. Or even just drink it because it's tasty and good for you.

There’s snow on the ground in Boulder today which makes today’s post so apropos! We often hear cleansers talk about shivering to the bone after sipping on a frosty green smoothie during the winter months. The feeling can be, well, quite chilling to say the least.
