Some Get Healthy Tea

Some sort of bug managed to sneak into our house. Two weeks ago Jenna had a high fever, I got knocked down a bit over the weekend (thus the sore throat of yesterday I suppose), and today Jacob’s home with a high fever.

I have this awesome tea that I make when I’m feeling under the weather and it almost always helps restore me quickly to health (I drank it over the weekend, but I guess I should have had a day or two more and I would have avoided the sore throat). I made a big batch of it this morning to knock this thing down once and for all.

I like to start with a big pot of boiled water, but then I move it all over to my slow cooker and keep it on the warm setting so I can enjoy it all day long. I usually take the tea bags out as they get pretty strong, but I leave the rest in the pot for the day.

Start with some sliced up ginger, cardamom, peppercorn, cloves, a cinnamon stick, and two tea bags (I used decaf green, but you could use black tea as well).

Boil some water and fill it in your slow cooker (or just leave the pot on the stove if you don’t have a slow cooker), add the ingredients into the water

Don’t you love the mug? I got it when we were home last summer 🙂
