In the Caribbean, Orange Peel Tea is something often used to cure an upset stomach. The peels from oranges are cut away from the fruit and hung out to dry, and later used to steep in hot water for tea. The use of citrus peels is also well documented in Chinese traditional medicines and flavor certain dishes. In China, they use the peels of sun-dried mandarin oranges to make a tea called Chenpi. This traditional medicine was also used to assist in stomach-related issues like nausea, heartburn and to help remove gas. Today, orange peel tea has been credited as a great source of vitamin C and an excellent way to reset your digestion. Enjoy this simple orange peel tea to warm your body and help your tummy.
