Cumin, Coriander and Ginger Infusion (Tea)

Aahh, relax!

Coriander and Ginger Tea

You find the most magical spice infusions in India. Although I still call them “teas”, technically, they are infusions or tisanes. In India, tea (chai) is only made from the leaves of the tea plant, often supplemented with spices.

Similar recipes include Cumquat Tea, Mint and Lemon Verbena Tea, Ginger Cooler, and Ginger and Lemongrass Tea.

This is a recipe from our first blog which was in existence from 1995 to 2006. Feel free to browse other recipes from this blog in our Retro Recipes.
