Ingredients

  • 1-2 cups of water
  • 1 decaffeinated tea bag
  • 1 tsp of dried aloe sap powder or 1 large aloe vera leaf
  • 1 tsp of honey (if desired)

Instructions

  • To make aloe vera tea, bring a saucepan of water (nearly 2 cups of water) to a boil.
  • Steep a decaffeinated green tea bag in the hot water for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add about 1 teaspoon of dried aloe sap powder into the tea, or squeeze the aloe vera jelly directly out of an aloe leaf. For that, cut the edges from the aloe leaf. Furthermore, cut the leaf in half and scrape out the jelly from its center and pour it into the cup. 
  • Add honey or a sweetener after straining the tea. Now enjoy!

Notes

Pre-mixed aloe vera teas are available, which come in an assortment of various flavors. However, to make it from scratch not only gives you a thrill of another kind but also is a much healthier option.
