Tea Time! A Tea To Help You Spring Into Spring

So now here is a great tea to start sipping to improve circulation and help with the morning mucus that starts to accumulate in the end of winter, beginning of spring.

Cardamon, Ginger, Fennel Tea

I make a batch just as I do with the CCF tea (Cumin, Coriander, Fennel)

Mix equal amounts of cardamon seeds and fennel seeds and slice up strips of fresh ginger (recommend appx. a 1/4 inch strip for each 1/4 teaspoon of your mixture of cardamon and fennel). Place all ingredients in a coffee grinder (that is only used for spices not for coffee) or use a pestle and mortar. 

Place a 1/2 teaspoon to 3/4 teaspoon (depends on taste) and steep in a cup of hot water for 5 minutes.  Enjoy!  Wonderful way to start your morning after your cup or two of hot water of course.  Maybe sip as you go through your morning rituals.

You may be tempted to make an iced version as it gets warmer but in the morning you want HEAT to wake up your system
