Ayurvedic Tea with Spices
The many spices in the self-prepared ayurvedic tea promote digestion, are antispasmodic, soothe the stomach, help against flatulence and some have an antibacterial effect. The tea is therefore a perfect drink after the consumption of hard to digest food.
If the homemade Ayurvedic tea is too spicy for you, you can reduce the pungency with milk.
Put pepper and fennel in a mortar and grind for a few seconds. Break open the cardamom capsule with the back of a knife. Wash the ginger and cut into small pieces.
Put the spices in a hot pot and roast briefly at medium heat. Then add ginger and about 5 cups of water and bring to the boil. Boil over low heat for about 25-30 minutes.
Drain the tea and divide it between four cups.
