There is nothing more comforting on a cold winters day than a warm cup of spiced ginger tea for the cold and sore throat. Spices like cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves warm the body giving comfort from within while the ginger and honey soothe a sore throat from outside
Makes 2 cups spice mixture (for 8 cups tea)
One cup of tea
¼cupSpice mixtureprepare above
Prevent your screen from going dark
Using a mortar and pestle again - coarsely grind the spices - set aside
Top with 1 cup boiling hot water (about 1:3 parts mix: water)
You can infuse with a tea bag (I drink it with as well as without tea bags)
Add 1 tablespoon honey or more as you need.
Extra notes and precautions.
Everybody's body reacts to spices differently - for a start I suggest you drink no more than two cups a day. I personally can drink quite a few cups in a day.
If you are not comfortable with any of the spices in this recipe you can omit or reduce the quantity.
Drink only as much as you can handle. I add ¼ cup spice mixture and top with 1 cup hot water but you could make it weaker or stronger too!
Always be cautious when given kids something for the first time. This is my Rhea's favorite drink and she can take two full cups of tea a day. She's only seven. Having said that I'd suggest making a very light and sweet drink just to give them some warmth from the spices.
