Cardamom, Coriander and Fennel Herbal Tea

Cardamom, Coriander and Fennel Herbal Tea

Try this tea/herbal infusion, but not before bed. It is slightly diuretic so may disturb your sleep. It is another of the great Spring Detox teas, all of which are a variation on a theme. This is one of the first such teas that I made, and was instantly aware of its properties. Oh the power of herbs and spices.

Please also check out similar Teas – Pitta Tea, and Cumin, Coriander and Fennel Tea, – both also suitable for Spring. Read The Making of Herbal Teas, and enjoy the 5 C’s Golden Spiced Tea, and Yogi Tea.
