September is a great month for getting friends together — especially over coffee or tea after the kids are off to school. Norwex is rewarding those who do with the chance to earn free, new products bound to brighten your fall!

Speaking of tea …
Make mine green, of course. Green tea is rich with antioxidants and linked to an array of health benefits, including weight loss and heart health. Served hot or cold, it’s a wonderful beverage to sip while thinking about how to make our homes healthier, too. Here is one of my favorite green tea recipes:
Citrus Mint Iced Tea
Toss some fresh mint leaves, orange slices and green tea bags into a boiling teapot. Serve over ice, and garnish the glasses with orange or lime slices.
Lemon Grass and Ginger Iced Tea
Fresh Lemon Grass – 1 stalk
Fresh Ginger – 7 slices
Green Tea – 5 bags
Sugar – ½ cup
Rinse the lemon grass using your Norwex fruit and veggie scrub cloth. Cut into 2-inch lengths, and crush them with a large knife. Bring two cups of water, ginger, lemongrass and sugar to boil in a saucepan. Remove the pan from the heat, add green tea bags, and steep the tea for about five minutes. Remove the tea bags when you think the flavor strong enough. Let the tea cool for about 30 minutes. Pour the tea into a pitcher through a fine strainer. Chill the tea for at least two hours. Serves four.
