    I often throw a slice of fresh ginger into whatever tea I’m steeping! but I also have used dried juniper berries (especially when I have a cold – I give them a bash first) and green cardamom pods with licorice root

    It’s not a spice but I love adding a little lavender to my tea..especially bed time blends!

    A herb that most people look at me strange when I say I use in my tea is Stinging Nettle! Urtica dioica is the botanical name and you can get it at most health food stores. I have nursed all 3 of my children for 2 years each and this was the only tea that I found effective for doubling my milk supply. It is also really great for kidney health too. I enjoy a few teaspoons in my mug with slices of lemon and a dallop of honey, it has a very nice taste to it too!

    I haven’t done too many infusions yet. Cinnamon is about the only spice I’ve tried so far.

    I use fennel seeds, and cloves. They are very soothing just before or just after a meal.

    The most unusual spice would be peppercorns. I had never heard of tea using peppercorns until my SIL from El Salvador came to visit. She said her grandmother would simmer peppercorns and some other spices to make a tea to fight a cold. Now, I use peppercorns, especially with turmeric.

    I usually just put honey or milk and sugar in my tea but ginger is amazing in tea. I would love to try this

    I use all kinds of herbs, spices, and flowers in my own tea blends. Nothing is off limits, if it smells, tastes, or is good for you.

    I like a great breakfast tea. There’s nothing that says ” Breakfast time!”like bacon.Lapsang Souchong with a hit of natural hickory maple smoked bacon and chai spice ( love cardamom!)….yum. Not for the faint of heart, this tea is a bit heated with the smokeyness of the black base and bacon finishing of with the chai!

    I like adding cinnamon in my tea and I have tried a few different kinds of cinnamon to find a stronger infusion.

    I drinking a.t.m Cinnamon, Ginger, Apple Cider (1 teaspoon) and honey (1 teaspoon) in the morning. It helps with my sore throat and it is warming and it is a nice alternative from tea.

    Three of my most favorite things, a perfect storm for a hot drink! I didn’t know about the coconut or flaxseed oil and pepper addition benefits. Definitely something to try. I love adding floral touches, rose, hibiscus and especially jasmine.

    I don’t think I’ve ever tried anything too unusual. I’ve tried cardamom a few times but ginger is my favourite especially for an upset tummy.
