Lime Cinnamon Clove Tisane

Submitted by: 4A-HEALTHY-BMI

Introduction

While in CA this past January I developed a taste for Good Earth herbal tea. Unfortunately it is not easy to find where I live in upstate NY, so while waiting for a shipment to arrive from Amazon I came up with something close.

This concoction has a sweetness that helps make my sweet tooth cravings shut up and go away for a while. It's also good in the morning as something to put in a mug and microwave.

It would probably be awesome iced too, but it's too cold at the moment for me to want to try that! LOL

Directions

- Boil 1.7 liters of water (a standard 1500w electric teakettle's volume)
- Have a 1.7 or 1 liter thermos carafe waiting
- Pour a small amount of boiled water into the thermos, cap, and roll to pre-warm cavity
- Dump warming water out of carafe
- Add 6 cinnamon sticks (3-inches long each)
- Add about 6-8 whole cloves
- Add 3 Numi Dry Desert Lime teabags (yank off the tags and drop the whole bag in, string and all)
- If you have any whole orange or tangerine peels, you can add them too. I have some dried orange peels my dad gave me once when I visited him in CA about 10 years ago and I sometimes add those. This is so good that I'm starting to save MY orange peels, too. (Don't tell HAVASUROSE I'm turning into our dad, OK? lol)
- Fill to the top with hot water and cap
- Steep for an hour
- Shake to stir up the flavors that have settled
- Serve
