As the seasons change and the weather becomes cooler I find it harder to drink sufficient water. If you’re still happy with cold drinks this previous article has lots of ideas to perk up water. However, if like me you struggle then switching to herbal infusions can be a great tactic. Of course you can buy lots of good concoctions these days, but a few simple additions can make them so much more interesting.

Lemon and Ginger Infusion

I start every morning with this drink. Lemon water is a brilliant way to get your day off to a good start. I like to pour hot water over a squeeze of lemon juice, a slice of lemon and some fresh ginger root and enjoy (preferably in peace and quiet!).

Rooibos Tea with Lemon, Cinnamon and Cardamom

This is as simple as one rooibos teabag, 5 cardamom pods (lightly crushed), a slice of lemon and a stick of cinnamon. Add hot water and leave to infuse for 2-4 minutes to taste. It only takes a few seconds more and brightens up a cup of rooibos no end! Did you know…that rooibos is from South Africa and means ‘Red Bush’. It isn’t actually tea at all and is  naturally caffeine free.

Citrus and Mint Infusion (aka pimped up fresh mint tea)

A simple fresh mint tea of hot water pored over mint is a thing of beauty, but the simple addition of some citrus makes for a refreshing change. Squeeze a wedge each of lemon, lime and orange into your mug, pop the squeezed wedges in the mug as well along with a small bunch of mint. Pour over hot water and leave to infuse before sitting back to enjoy! If you want to have this at work you can place the ready cut fruit and herbs into a small bag or tub to take with you. As you’re putting the fruit in your tea you may want to try and get organic unwaxed citrus fruits.
