The weather is starting to shift to the cool raininess of autumn. The kids have started their homeschool activities, and there's a buzz in the air this year about illness.
How can we help our bodies transition from the warm dry summer, through the cool damp autumn and into cold winter?
Keep a pot of an immune boosting, herbal chai brewing throughout the winter , and the kids will LOVE it. What a wonderful feeling to be nourishing them with medicine they enjoy.
I'm starting the chai early - using it as a fall tonic to nourish our immune systems and to warm our bodies on chilly fall days.
Most often chai is made with strong black tea, but I am not interested in that large dose of caffeine and make mine with herbs alone. It is delicious!
Ready for the recipe?
What you do...
Simmer the spices in the water for about 15 minutes. (If you’d like to add black tea, add 1/8 cup after removing from the heat and steep for not more than 3 minutes.)
Strain out the herbs, add warmed milk (I suggest at least 1/4 cup) and honey to taste. Enjoy this delicious fall tonic, and the wonderful feeling of giving your kids (and you) a tasty, nourishing treat!
