This is a recipe for a quick immunity boost tea that you can make in about 10 minutes and enjoy for a few days!
The recipe yields about a litre of syrup.
First of all you need the black pepper, pestle and mortar and a bit of strength. You'll need about twice the ammount in the picture (roughly two teaspoons), you can add more if you like.
Grind it to about the smoothness you see here. It's enough to give the flavour, but it's small enough so you can strain it later.
Once you're done, you can add cinammon and yarrow.
Beat that till it looks similar.
Now you need a sharp knife to get some lemon slices...these give the "zing" of the syrup. Try to slice them as thin as you can.
Now you can just go ahead and toss it all in a pot. Easy right?
This is a good time to add some honey to the mix, don't know how it is in your country, but in mine, honey is a bit more expensive. So we'll add some sugar to get it all sweet enough.
Toss in some sugar - which would be roughly 200 grams, we don't want to sweeten it too much, because it's easier to add some sugar to taste, when you use it.
Put it on the cooker on max heat and bring it to a boil.
Stir it well and once it's boiling reduce the heat to about half, don't let it boil violently. Now setup a timer for 3 minutes and leave it on. Put some lid on too.
When three minutes is over, you can strain it to an old wine bottle or something. Now with what's left, you just might want to eat the lemon slices, because they are delicious!
Once you strain it into a bottle don't worry about little bits...it happens. One more thing, don't do too much at a time, because this is a proper natural thing, it will spoil in 10 days. So be carefull and if there's something weird with it, don't drink it.
First of all, it's based on ayurvedic black tea, so it's really an immunity boost. So with COVID being pretty much everywhere, this could come in handy.
Why do I make syrup instead of just tea? That's easy, because this way you can enjoy it in any way you like. I use it to make cold or hot drinks, sometimes I use it with sparkling water to make 'sort of lemonade'.
Now one last thing, if you made it, please share the recipe on facebook, show some love here and send a comment! Thank you.
