Basil Ginger Lime Tea
Basil Ginger Lime Tea is a refreshing and good for you drink made by steeping spices like coriander, cardamom along with fresh basil, ginger and lime juice. A different kind of tea, this is a refreshing drink that comes with health and healing benefits that can be served chilled or hot.
I have said time and time again about the natural healing and health benefits of spices and herbs. As you can tell, I like to make my own comforting teas to drink as in the recent recipe over the winter that I enjoyed for soothing therapeutic herbal tea. This tea is no different when it comes to the ingredients because each one serves a purpose.
This basil ginger lime tea is almost as easy as dropping a teabag into a cup and adding hot water.
The element of these teas that I like the most is that they can be enjoyed year round. Ho in the cold months when you’re feeling under the weather and chilled for the warm summer days to refresh and take in added nutrients at the same time. This tea is also caffeine free so you can enjoy it right before bedtime.

Hello this is very informative and another detox recipe I am willing to include in my life,but I do have to say something I’ve been using the lemonginger detox for a month and it’s worked great,lemon is just as healthy as lime they have similar flavors but anyways I’ve been getting negative articles about lemonginger detox saying it doesn’t work and these articles are so negative as if someone is downplaying everything I do,and these articles didn’t show up until I started doing my detox.
This website has way too many ads. Content won’t load properly with all that marketing code drama I can’t even see the content. Bring your content elsewhere. This website is horrible.
It’s unfortunate that you feel that I have too many ads on my website and that it is ‘horrible’. However, let me tell you the reason why. All my recipes are there for free. I put in a lot of work, recipe testing, photographing and making the videos so I have to fund the website somehow and it is done so through the display ads. You’ll be hard pressed to find any free, good recipe websites out there without any ads.
Thanks for the recipe. This is worth a try. I tried a few detox teas from iahas.com and they are all so good and effective. But this one looks a little unique, and I would love to give it a try.
Wonderful, let me know if you have any questions and enjoy.
I didn’t have ALL of the ingredients and used 4tbs of lemon juice along with 2-4 tbs of ginger ale I had made. I also didn’t have the first two ingredients listed in the order they are above. I’m trying to avoid going out as much as possible to stores. So, I made do with what I had. Over all, with just the partial semi-same recipe, it came out great! It makes me like basil tea even more than just the basic leaf in water now.
I’m happy you used my recipe as a building block to make your own drink. Thank you for the feedback.
I’m always looking for a new summer drink and I’m going to be making this for the weekend and maybe add a little bourbon? 🙂
Thanks Danni and I like how you think. Enjoy! 🙂
This makes me so happy, thank you
I love ginger, glad to come across your site, will definitely prepare this one!
I made this for a farmers market stand for my friend and everyone loved it. Thank you for sharing
A recipe with Ginger. Perfect! This tea is going to be very useful on dreary days that are staples of March and April in FL. Thank you for the idea.
Yes it is, thanks Meggan 🙂 It’s so good, enjoy.
Gorgeous photos! Ginger tea for a ginger girl. 🙂 I’m actually really into herbal teas right now, and this one looks like a nice break from my usual jasmine. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
