Summary

Everyone knows that chamomile tea is the answer to a good night's sleep and that ginger tea can settle your stomach. But did you know that Jamu Kunyit, a ginger and turmeric tonic, is the Balinese equivalent of "an apple a day" to "keep health problems at bay"; that herbal medicinal vinegars can be antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral as well as helping fight respiratory infections, coughs, and bronchitis; or that adding black pepper and coconut oil to any turmeric drink can help your body reap the benefits more effectively?

Rachel de Thample has gathered a collection of the best of these ancient drinks and traditional remedies, along with a few modern spins, offering tips on how to best build them into a busy lifestyle. Organized into three chapters, she covers tonics such as Dairy Keifr, Beet Kvass, Nettle Tonic, and Ginger Shots; teas such
as Grasshopper Tea, Spice Route Tea, Armenian Herbal Tea, and Afghan Pink Chai; plus delicious and beneficial drinks such as Elderflower Cordial, Amazake, and Kombucha. All of the recipes are nonalcoholic and simple to put together. This eclectic mix of natural brews is the perfect way to give your body a healthy boost.
