All you need is .... 
                  Lemon Water. Sour taste in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine corresponds to the Liver and Gall Bladder. When you squeeze lemon juice into a glass of water not only you are getting a doze of vitamin C, but it also stimulates digestion, detoxes the liver and if used frequently may prevent or even reduce gall stones (not varied by FDA).

Warm water or room temperature is advisable as cold or iced water will impair digestion and cold generally contacts objects so less blood will flow in to your digestive tract and warm as we know increases circulation so more blood in your intestines is a good thing.

Besides ice cubes in the past were known to contain fecal matter :(
DO you really need it ?  In authentic Chinese restaurants they always give you hot tea. So raise the sour glass and toast to your health,

P.S. BTW lime is good too.

Be Well
