I made this as part of the Pick Your Chef(July 25-27'2003). Actually, I had a slight cramp attack y'day in my left leg and that got me to try this sooner than the 25th of July. I found the spice combo really nice. I loved the fennel seeds in this. This was a spicy tea and I loved it. To think that it can help my cramp, makes me happier. I used fresh herbs for this. As for seasonings, I used one tsp. of sugar per serving and a little over 1/4 cup of low-fat milk. I will remember to make this when anyone at home gets down with a cough. Thank you for a nice recipe!
Delicious & I love that it does not contain caffeine, I also made ours dairy free. I used all but the tulsi, fresh mint, creamed honey to sweeten and Amazing Almond Milk instead of regular milk. I would make this again especially for health issues but I think it's wonderful to drink without one of those reasons.
