Boost your energy. Loosen up congestion.

Looking for a tea that’ll turn your body up a notch? Cayenne pepper tea does just that. It’s very popular as a coffee alternative as the chili pepper helps boost your metabolism. You just feel more energized, all without the caffeine.

Plus the tea is often used to help temporarily loosen up congestion due to colds and allergies. It’s all due to the capsaicin in the cayenne which has a lot of health benefits including appetite suppression and pain relief.

Sweeten your cayenne pepper tea with your favorite sweetener. Honey works well here!
