East Meets West Springtime Tea

One of my favourite things about working with ancient Ayurveda and modern wellness, is that when you combine the best of both, magic starts to happen.

This simple tea recipe combines locally picked herbs native to the UK, with Ayurvedic staples like cinnamon, cardamom and fennel seed. 

Just as with Ayurveda and holistic health, there’s no ‘one’ way of doing things, and everything is an experiment. Everything in this tea is brilliant for supporting liver health, digestion, blood sugar balance, reducing water retentions as well as providing a good dose of iron. If you come across these herbs whilst out on a walk, give it a go!

INGREDIENTS

Makes 1 large pot of tea

  • 1 handful each of locally foraged cleavers and nettle
  • 1 tbsp fennel seeds
  • 1/2 cinnamon stick
  • 3 cardamom pods

    METHOD
  • Add hot water and brew for 5-10 mins 
  • Serve with local honey & enjoy!
