Imagine a delicious tea that boosts fat burn and curbs sweet cravings. Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? Well, it's not! Say hello to what I like to call “fire tea”.
Fire tea is a seriously simple warm beverage that only calls for three basic ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen: Cinnamon sticks, fresh ginger and raw honey.
Even Nagina Abdullah, a weight loss coach and wellness expert based in New York City, swears by fire tea. “It's such an indulgence, but it still keeps your weight off,” she says.
Read on to learn what gives fire tea its fast-blasting superpowers and for the quick-and-easy recipe!
Research shows that cinnamon and ginger are two top fat-burning foods
According to studies, both cinnamon and ginger are fantastic for your waistline.
Cinnamon boosts satiety and mimics sweetness, so it can help you cut back on sweet cravings and reduce your sugar intake. What’s more, it’s proven to promote healthy blood sugar
levels, improve cognitive function and protect your heart.
Ginger, on the other hand, helps with weight management by aiding in digestion. One study published in 2012 revealed that participants who drank a hot ginger beverage after every meal, felt fuller and more satisfied.

The benefits of fire tea go beyond weight loss
. Because the tea packs some super-soothing benefits, it’s great for your digestive health as well and can help relieve stomach cramps and calm an upset stomach.
Honey in particular can even soothe a sore throat and a stubborn cough.
