Simple Calming Tea

In addition to flavoring foods, spices have particular effects on our bodies. For instance, you can make a simple calming tea as follows:

*CCF Tea (*Cumin, Coriander & Fennel)

  • 1/4 tsp coriander seed
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp fennel seeds

Place the seeds into a tea ball. 
Add the tea ball and cumin to a cup of boiling water and let steep for a few minutes. 
For a creamier flavor, add a little rice milk to the brew.

Try CCF Tea the next time you're feeling stressed or tense. Hard to believe that such a simple recipe can be so effective, but I find it nicely calming and relaxing.

TIP: If you want to make up a larger quantity of this tea in advance, you can portion it into individual tea bags by ordering (bleach-free) bags from This is especially helpful if you travel, since you may not have the individual spices at hand where you're staying.
