Crazy for Tea - New Recipe & Tea
January 24, 2009

Hi all you faithful herbal tea and tea enthusiasts! Thought I would share this excellent recipe I had come accross with you - I haven't even had a chance to add it to the Crazy for Tea website yet.

Winter is still upon us, and lots of us are suffering from colds that just seem to hang on, if you know what I mean. If you have had enough and just want to shake that cold, this is a great recipe for treating colds and feeling better within just 24 hours. (I tried it, it really works!)

Tastes a bit "nasty" but hey, it works.

Instant Cold Relief Tea

2 cups water head of garlic - Yes the WHOLE THING! 1 inch fresh ginger root 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper 2 sprigs baby dill - get if from your grocer 1 bag or loose black or oolong tea - any type will due juice of 1 lemon - fresh squeezed works best honey - to make it easier to get down! Boil the water, and lower to a simmer.

Peel and crush the garlic & gingerroot, and add to water. Add cayenne, baby dill, tea and lemon juice. Remove from the heat and let it steep.

Allow to steep for 5 minutes, and then strain your tea.

When it has cooled sufficiently, sweeten with honey.

Now, get ready for bed.... you will sweat the cold right out of your body, and while you won't believe how much you "smell" the next day from all the garlic, you will feel 100% better than you did!

So for those of you suffering like I was, give it a shot.

By the way, we just secured a bunch of authentic and really great tasting Oolong tea direct from a supplier in China. Good quality ooling can be really expensive, and I usually drink Oolongs that range in the $70-$80 per 250 gram range. But, I am really happy to be able offer this premium oolong at just $13.95.

If you want to try an authentic oolong without forking out a ton of money, I just put up our sales page, and it is selling fast.

As a side note: I have been drinking it now for 3 weeks and have lost 4.5 pounds! Great tasting tea and the bonus of shedding a few pounds. What a deal!

Cheers for now, and here is to some warmer weather! (Bring on the ice tea!)
