I like to drink a cuppa tea each day. It can be anything, white, green, brown, black. Fermented. Not. Herbal, spices or flowers. Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Ayurvedic. Gingery. Minty. Rosebuds. Dried apples. Dried mandarin skins. You name it, I drink it. I even grow it! (Lemongrass, lemon verbena, cardamom leaves, kaffir lime leaves, parsley, thyme, sage, rosemary…)
Just a note. In India, where so much of our tea comes from, Tea is Tea – real, proper, genuine tea. Anything else is something else. Here, “tea” means something, anything, that is infused in hot water.
Pitta tea, an ayurvedic tea very good for Rainy weather (here, late Autumn and late winter/pre spring weather), is quite drying, so I also make it when I need something to stop runny noses and other unpleasant symptoms of colds and flu.
