Secrets from My Macrobiotic Kitchen with Julie S. Ong

Eat better. Live better. Love better.

A Taste of California Sun

Imagine sitting in a citrus grove, the warm California sun beating down, and the smell of orange blossoms wafting in the breeze. This warming beverage will take you there.

Orange Peel Tea has been used for centuries by the Chinese for clearing out congestion in the lungs and large intestine. This brew is very helpful for soothing bloating, gas, nausea, or indigestion. It also improves blood and lymph circulation, promotes digestion, and eliminates excess fluid in the body. (If you were wondering about remedies for too much New Year’s Eve partying!)

  1. In a saucepan, add orange peel and water.
  2. Bring to boil, lower heat, and simmer until one cup liquid remains.
