My substitution to morning coffee

For about a year or two now I’ve almost given up on drinking coffee in the morning, thanks to my father. Instead of coffee he makes us these amazing teas that fill our mornings with energy and boost up our hearts. So I thought why not share some recipes with you so that you too can substitute your morning coffee with a more healthy, energetic drink!
