A rounded tablespoon of raw sugar or a giant squeeze of agave nectar or honey, plus an aromatic jasmine or tropical green tea, and I’m all set on a cold winter day (in summer, after steeping the tea, I pour it over ice and enjoy it cool). Other de-stressors, like reading a good book, focused breathing exercises, a whole foods diet, walking and yoga are perfect adjuncts to green tea.
