Honey & Apple Cider Vinegar Tea

Updated on January 11, 2018

Recognition...

Firstly I have to admit that I did not invent this combination drink and have to shout out all praise to the messiah that is Tim Ferris for this one, my adaptation to his original is simply my choice of tea.


Tim Ferris uses Douglas Fir loose tea in the video in which he introduces this combination.

Ideally you want to be consuming this tea roughly about an hour before you go to bed, this gives the ingredients plenty of time to work their wonders. In this time you want to be avoiding using your computer or phone to read blog posts like this one, only joking read them read them all! No seriously the blue light that is omitted from your devices suppresses your melatonin levels, thus reducing your chance of a good slumber.

Two good alternatives to doing snapchats of you in your jammies are; read a good book, I personally choose to read a fiction book as it helps me relax. I find that if I read non fiction at night my mind tends to wonder, and begins to start trying to problem solve. The other alternative is to have a nice hot soak in the bath, try using some epsom salts to help you unwind, furthermore you could combine the two and read your fiction book whilst in the bath.

Recipe

Ingredients:


1 x Teabag - Strawberry & Kiwi (personal choice, just ensure that yours is decaff)

1 x Tsp - Raw Honey

2 x Tsp - Apple Cider Vinegar

1 x Cup Boiled Water

Instructions:


1. Brew the Kettle and pour into a cup.

2. Add Raw Honey & Apple Cider Vinegar and stir.

3. Add the Teabag and steep for approximately 5 - 6 minutes.

4. Remove teabag and begin your journey to never never land.

Now, as above you can choose any tea you want to and if you have the ability to you can use loose tea as well. You just want to ensure that it is a decaffeinated tea so that you aren't waking yourself up again.

I personally prefer a fruit flavoured tea with this combination as I find normal english breakfast tea to be a bit of a clash, my tea of choice is Charbrew's strawberry & kiwi the flavour is so strong and tasty! I know you may be looking at the addition of apple cider vinegar and thinking that is all you are going to taste, but quite honestly I never notice it, I find the honey and flavoured teas do enough to over power it, therefore leaving you with none of the taste yet all of the benefits.


I would like to say that there is a science behind why these ingredients when combined help you to fall to sleep, but truth is I don't think there is. I just know from my experience that it works and works well.

Get Ready To Sleep!!

Remember to switch off your gadgets an hour before you go to bed.


Well this may well be a simple recipe/combination but none the less it is an effective one. Please let me know in the comments box below if this has helped you to get a good nights rest. Also let me know if what kind of tea you have used or would use, I love the sampling new teas, however I am not quite sure if I am adventurous enough to try Douglas Fir!


Would you?

      I think green tea is good, but I do also have one with mint. Don't know how the other ingredients would work with it. Might have to try.

      Rochelle Frank thank you for commenting!

      Since I created this article I have been using black tea and a teaspoon of butter combined in the morning, it seems to wake me right up and put the hunger pangs at bay, I would love to try a green tea but I just can not find one that I like. You are very fortunate not to have any issues when falling asleep, I wish I could say the same!

      I like the AC vinegar and honey idea, but I have no problem falling asleep. I'm thinking of using the combination in the morning with green or black tea for a starter.
