Nourish Bites: Make Your Own Tea Bags ☕️😊

I used my last $0.35 Tazo Chai Tea bag.  I really like this organic tea, but my financial discipline is keeping me from buying it regularly.  They say necessity is the mother of invention.  During this time I’m cooling my heels in a cold, wintery New York City, to me tea is necessary.  It’s warm, hydrating, and if it is made from good stuff, it can deliver nutrients and minerals of different kinds and be beneficial to your health.

Dominica Nutmeg

Still had some nutmeg that my cousin brought me from Dominica last summer and a big branch of organic ginger.

I cut a piece of cheese cloth, grated those up, tied it all up into a little bag and set it to boil.  I started with a large quart saucepan of water, and let it reduce to a little less than 1/3.

 What you get:

Nutmeg is said to relieve pain, soothe indigestion, strengthen cognitive function, detoxify the body, boost skin health, alleviate oral conditions, reduce insomnia, increase immune system function, and prevent leukemia, and improve blood circulation.

Ginger is powerfully medicinal.  It is good for relieving digestive problems such as nausea, motion sickness and morning sickness. It is anti-inflamatory and can lower cholesterol.  I could go on for days about ginger but if you’re reading this, I’ll bet you either know already how super a food ginger is, or you are inclined to go find out yourself ASAP!

You can add other things you have in the kitchen as you see fit: lemon zest, cinnamon (which combines with ginger to do some more super work in your bod!), whole clove or bay leaves.

Sweeten a cup of this delicious, aromatic, healing tea with half a teaspoon of stevia or enjoy unsweetened.
