Cinnamon, Ginger & Turmeric Tea

During summer months, I very rarely make any hot drinks for myself, but as it gets cooler, I do begin to enjoy herbal teas more occasionally, and thought I'd share a recipe that has become a favorite of my mom's and I've come to enjoy as well! It's actually unusual for me, since I really always have formerly disliked any spicy teas, but this one is nice since I can adjust the spices more to my taste. The original recipe called for 1/2 tsp. of ginger, but since that seemed overpowering to me, I cut it back to 1/4 tsp.

1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1/4 tsp. ginger
Honey (about 1 Tbsp., or to taste)

Steep the spices in one cup of hot water, straining them out afterwards with a coffee filter, if desired. (I personally don't mind drinking it as it is.) Add honey or sweetener of your choice.

The health benefits of these three spices (and the honey) might be a good reason to add it to your list to make! :)

 My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the
honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste:  So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.
~Proverbs 24:13
