Kid Fury

Do you guys remember that time I was trying to be all healthy and said I would replace coffee with tea?  Tea drinkers just seem so refined, adult and wholesome… Well, that didn’t go too well.  No one told me that tea tastes and smells like Petco.  Its like guinea pig food compressed into a little bag with a string but I digress.

On last week, I started feeling a bit ill.  In particular, my throat was killing me.  I had the flu during the New Years holiday so I thought I met my annual sick quota.  So eventually my throat went from being itchy to full out sore, I even had trouble swallowing.  So a friend (hey Cassandra) recommended that I drink tea and I was like, nope… That ain’t going to work.  The next day another friend (hey Almesha) told me to buy ginger tea and I was like fine.  It’s worth a try because I was not trying to go to the doctor. My little bro has a pretty big stash of tea and had ginger tea just as I suspected.  After the first two cups, I started feeling better. By day 2, I no longer had a sore throat.  Since then, I have been drinking two cups of ginger lemon tea (especially with this psycho weather).

Other benefits of ginger tea:

  • Assists with weight loss (helps digestive system, acts as fat burner, relives tired muscles after a kick ass workout, manages glucose levels, increases metabolism, and helps the body absorb nutrients)
  • Improves circulation
  • Opens up inflamed airways
  • Relieves motion sickness, nausea and morning sickness (serves as calming agent)
  • Blocks acid from heartburn
  • Relives gas
  • Clears sinuses
  • Serves as pain relief
  • Improves breath
  • Strengthens immunity
  • Detoxifies liver
  • Relieves stress
Convinced?  Go ahead to your local Kroger and get you a box, lol. You’re welcome.


I need friends, like Pink Gumbeaux on Facebook and follow me on Twitter and Instagram.  Do it now!
