I'm in the mood for tea again. This is a strange phenomena because I didn't used to like tea. I thought it was just hot watery juice. Ever since I was sick several weeks ago, I've hardly wanted anything but hot things to drink. I even used up the last of of my Postum, sadly, although I've gotten several other suggestions as to what I could "replace" it with. Here is a picture of the ingredients I'm using to make tea this morning. Sliced fresh ginger root, a sliced Cutie (California Clementine), Dried Raspberries from the Vitamin Cottage, some flat cinnamon sticks, cloves & star anise.
I could barely fit it all in.
It wasn't a very strong flavor, so I decided to add a MannaBear for some extra fruityness & a little sweetness...
Well, the result is warm & wet & mildly pleasant. What more could you want from tea after all?
