SUSTAINABLE LIVING - WINTER WARMER TEA

SUSTAINABLE LIVING - WINTER WARMER TEA

 

Tea and cake with a twist - our Winter Warmer Tea is the ideal drink to give you a little boost and warm you up this time of year! Our recipe is a good candidate for the reuse of surplus – most of us have spices losing their flavour in the back of a cupboard, so put them to good use!

WINTER WARMER TEA

As we continue to encourage environmentally friendly living, combining creativity and sustainability, your Winter Warmer Tea will vary depending on what warming spices you have at home.

INGREDIENTS

  • Fresh ginger peelings
  • Fresh herb leaves
  • Lemon zest
  • Orange zest
  • Honey
  • Your choice of warming spices – we recommend cinnamon, allspice, clove and nutmeg
  •  

    METHOD

    Boil a kettle & pour the water into a teapot. Grab a handful of the spices you have and steep with citrus zests, ginger peelings, herbs such as lemon verbena, mint, sage, and a drop of honey.

    Sip and adjust to taste, strain and either drink hot or chill.
