I came across this recipe when I was researching ideas on what I could add to help keep my pressure under control. I enjoy tea in the afternoon as a treat and this is perfect, I can get my treat and medicine in one dose. The Co-Op through Country Life Natural Foods offers great prices on many organic and specialty food items. The Retail store also offers great prices on many Bulk Herbs.
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. milk any type but whole is creamy
1/2 tsp. ginger ground (Co-Op price)
1 tsp. cinnamon (Co-Op price)
1 1/2 tsp. black tea
1 tsp cardamon ( I use 3-5 pods crushed) (Co-Op price)
2 tsp. honey (it does not need much sweetening) (Co-Op price)
Put all the ingredients into a small sauce pan and bring to a boil.
Strain out the tea and cardamon pods
