Spiced tea. A nice warm, spicy beverage to soothe any ailment you may have. It is especially good when dealing with a case of the sniffles. The warmth of the cinnamon really helps calm any cough while the star anise lends a great licorice flavor. Although this tea is pretty tasty on its own a little sweetener doesn’t hurt.
WHAT YOU NEED:
-2 large cinnamon sticks;
-2 star anise;
-2 cups of water;
WHAT YOU DO:
Place cinnamon sticks, cloves, star anise and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes before turning off heat.
Let stand for at least 5 minutes. Add sweetener if desired. Serve or hot or over ice for an iced cinnamon tea. Oh yum.
