The recipe says that is yields 8 to 10 servings, but I get barley one and a half because I do mostly tea with about 1/4 cup or less of cream. 


  • 2 cups water
  • 1 (1-inch) piece cinnamon stick
  • 4 green cardamom pods, smashed
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 1/2 star anise
  • 2 quarter-sized coins fresh ginger
  • 2 scant teaspoon black tea leaves (recommended: Taj Mahal) or black tea of choice (I used CHina black, its what I get in bulk at my Natural Grocers) 
  • 2 teaspoons honey, or more to taste
  • Whole milk or half-and-half


In a medium pan, bring the water, all of the spices and the ginger to a boil over medium heat. Turn off the heat and allow it to steep for 15 minutes.
Bring the mixture back to a boil, then add the tea. Turn the heat off, and allow it to steep for 3 to 5 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea. Stir in the honey and add milk to your liking. Strain it into a bowl or pitcher and serve!

Now its chicken time. My chickens were supposed to start laying eggs way back in August, but them with their stubbornness it took, well one of them about 3 months later. The Susex are still not laying, but Sasparilla (the austrolorp) is! She has laid 5 now! She started laying last week,
