Tea

This CCF (Cumin-Coriander-Fennel) tea helps both when digestion is off -- bloating, gas, pain, etc-- and will regulate metabolism anytime!

 

It often has the loved effect of warding off between meal hunger for those hoping to lose weigh in a healthy and mindful way.

Instructions

  • Combine 2 parts coriander to 2 parts Fennel to 1 part Cumin, whole Organic spices ware most effective!

  • Grind spices gently to bring out their essence.

  • Use 1 - 2 tsp per cup of tea.

  • Boil water and spices together and let steep five minutes or simply add spices in a strainer to your hot water in your tea cup and steep 7-10 minutes covered.

Pour in your thermos & sip throughout the day

Thanks for the tea rescue! I really like your recipe and have added fennel to my herb/spice cupboard. It was very soothing and the only thing that I drank for about 24 hours while my system took care of the painful gas and bloating like I’ve never before experienced." -Jane H.

Golden Milk is not necessarily tea, though this warm beverage is making waves in the food & wellness world.  

 

Traditionally, this beverage was made with boiled raw milk. The spices​ help to digest the milk, which is grounding, nourishing, heavy and good for evoking the qualities taht help us sleep well. 

Instructions: Combine the following ingredients and bring nearly to a boil before removing from heat:

  • 1 cup milk  (natural milk or raw milk is recommended, almond or coconut milk if you prefer)

  • ½ tsp Tumeric

  • 1 tsp cardamom (ground)

  • ½ tsp vanilla

  • ½ tsp ginger (use especially if congested, avoid in heat of summer, use fennel instead)

  • ½ tsp nutmeg

  • Boil with raw sugar if you choose, or add honey once cool enough to drink

 

Let cool to drinking temperature and drink before bed

Chai Tea (serves 2)

 

On a cold morning, there is simply nothing I want more to sip on than a hot chai. You can choose to add milk and sugar, I almost always do! Substitute black pepper or mint for ingredients you don't have or don't love. There is not right way, other than the way that tastes the best to you. "Chai" means tea. The commons ingredients to a chai served in America are black tea & ginger. My favorite caffeine free version is with rooibos or red bush teas. 

 

Instructions

  • 1 cup filtered water

  • 2 TBS whole fennel seeds

  • 1 slice fresh ginger or ½ tsp ginger powder (less pungent than fresh)

  • 2-3 cloves

  • 3-4 cardamom pods, crushed

  • 1 inch piece of cinnamon stick

  • 2 tsp black (can be decaf) or green tea or leave out and just make a spiced milk, to which you could add healing turmeric!

  • 1 cup raw whole organic milk (almond milk is ok to substitute)

  • Bring all above ingredients to boil, once boiling, turn to low and cook 7-10 minutes

  • Add 1-2 TBS raw sugar, maple syrup or raw local honey once cool enough to drink

Share with a loved one and sip slowly.
