Not exactly a teapot post today but one that is tea related so that’s all good, right? I am always drawn into articles or posts about tea and tea companies so it is no surprise that I found the following tea recipe by herbalist and educator Rachelle Robinette to be one to add to my recipe file.
I found this recipe while reading her blog and decided to give it a try. After all- sleep is important and I have not had great sleep for quite awhile. I am willing to give anything a try to see if it will help. The cinnamon factor in this easy to make “tea” is a warming, anti-inflammatory spice that supports digestion and stabilizes blood sugar. That’s a good thing. The idea is to drink a cup of this at nighttime before you go to sleep and it will aid in everything good happening.
It’s a really simple recipe and I found that doubling it made it just the perfect cup to drink at bedtime. I am not sure it has really helped with my sleep at all but it is a nice soothing drink.
1 Cinnamon stick
1 inch piece ginger
1 anise star
1 slice fresh orange
Honey to taste
Put first three ingredients and 8 ounces of water in saucepan and simmer 10 minutes. Pour into a mug and squeeze the orange slice into the mug. Add honey as desired and enjoy.
There you go – a sweet little drink to enjoy at bedtime. To read the post where I found the recipe please click here.
