Do your summer drinks need a detox?

This week, we bring you some super tasty recipes from the very lovely Claire Obeid, a Sydney-based yoga teacher, holistic health coach and blogger at the equally lovely Saha Space.

All you need is a big old ice tea jug (Claire recommends one from T2), some basic ingredients and a willing guinea pig to test them on.

1) Ginger, lemon, mint and raw honey

Grate a thumb sized amount of ginger into a 2ltr pot
Boil up water for 15 minutes
Add in 1 tbsp of raw honey (you can use rice syrup or any other healthy/natural sweetener)
Once cooled pour into jug
Serve with a slice of lemon, mint sprigs and ice cubes

2) Rose, cinnamon and apple

Boil up a 2ltr pot of water with cinnamon bark sticks (not the quills for cooking but actual bark)
In jug add in slices of fresh apple and rose bud tea (T2!)
Pour in boiled cinnamon tea
Serve chilled with a dash of cinnamon powder

3) Green tea, mint and lemon

Boil water
In jug add green tea, lemon slices and fresh mint
Pour water in, cool and chill

4) Pomegranate and fresh lime 

Pomegranate concentrate from the health food shop is the best option
Add to 2ltrs of hot water + add fresh juice from 2 limes
Pour into jug and chill
Add in fresh lime slices (and pomegranate seeds if you can find them) to serve on ice
