Spiced Herbal Iced Tea

I often keep a little pot of simmering herbs on the back of the stove making a flavorful medicinal tea, the herbs and spices vary depending on the season and other conditions. Suggestions for basic simmering herbs and spices:

  • pau d’arco (immune booster and anti-viral)
  • rooibus red tea (anti-oxidants)
  • cinnamon stick (blood-sugar regulator, circulation)
  • cloves (circulation)
  • cardamon
  • ginger (circulation, anti-nausea, heating)
  • 1 peppercorn (enhances the other spices actions)
  • tiny pinch of chili (enhances the other spices actions)
