Healing Ayurvedic Teas

Spice teas or brews with no caffeine are a wonderful way to heal from small illnesses like a throat ache or belly ache. They work at resetting our body in a way that no other food does. They will probably not taste very good the first time but they will feel good in your body, we promise you that!

Notes & Variations

  • The beauty of these infusions is that you can mix and match to personal tastes.
  • The infusions can turn a touch bitter if left for a long time.
  • If you are OK with the bitter (like I am), pour more hot water over the mixture 2 to 3 times over.
