Alternative to Tea and very healthy

This is a great alternative to tea and very healthy. It came to light from an email that did the rounds but even that is only echoing ancient knowledge of the medicinal qualities of plants.

Boil some water and let it cool off a little, until you guess it has dropped from boiling point (100C) down to about 80C. Stir in quarter of a teaspoon of cinnamon powder and then half a spoon of honey. You can increase on these amounts when you understand how strong each flavour is on your palate.

It makes for a fine caffeine free drink and the medicinal qualities are quite special. Along with the calming effect it brings about, the cinnamon and honey both have individual qualities plus even more qualities that emerge when the pair are mixed. Do take care not to use water that is too hot as you will negate several of these qualities by scalding the ingredients.

Have a little web search to find the medicinal qualities, they range from the incidental to the major.

Thanks for sharing. I'll try it as soon as I can get cinnamon powder from the supermarket :D

Here's another alternative to tea OR coffee: Warm a cup of water or milk. Stir in one tablespoon of blackstrap molasses. It's a great source of vitamin B6 and iron.
