I have a confession to make. I’m over winter. Done. Kaput. Finished. New England winter has been belligerent and very slow in saying ‘bah-bye.’ Don’t get me wrong, I adore cold, crisp, white air winter. Just not THIS long.
My purple tea kettle and fancy tea cup called out. Really, I was procrastinating a writing assignment I’d been dreading for weeks and today it’s due.
Peeled and sliced ginger, a teaspoon each black peppercorns, coriander, fennel, cumin, and several cardamom pods steeped in boiling water. Spice tea heals a host of boogers – boredom!, inflammation, dehydration, lethargy, and mixed with a bit of maple syrup, the soul.
The tea is drunk. The article written. (And pans washed, kitchen scrubbed, office dusted.) Submitted. Waiting for edits from my editor – blah! The cycle continues. Guess it’s time for more tea!
Psssst…….truth is, add ice and this is a refreshing summer drink. It’s not just for winter anymore.
