Food Factor: Tingly Herb Tea

By Ms. Natasha Haynes, MSU Extension Service

I enjoy warm drinks during the winter months, but coffee just isn’t the ideal afternoon beverage for me. I prefer something without caffeine.

Tingly Herbal Tea is the perfect fall flavored drink. While it’s called Tingly Herbal Tea, there is no tea in this drink. It’s a blend of spices, apple cider vinegar and water.

You can enjoy this easy-to-make drink year-round. You probably have the ingredients in your pantry already!

Tingly Herbal Tea


2 cups hot water

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Dash cayenne pepper powder

Wash hands with soap and water.

Put all ingredients in a mug. Stir ingredients.

Add splash of lemon juice or honey (optional).

Enjoy the beverage warm or at room temperature.

Serves 2.

Tips: If you don’t like as much kick, or if you have a sensitive stomach, leave out the cayenne pepper powder. For added flavor, try stirring this tasty herbal tea with a cinnamon stick.
