We're in for a couple of rainy, cold, dreary days. Perfect for cleaning out closets, sitting by the fire, and drinking hot tea. Not so perfect for any kind of photography. But some days, you've got to work with what you've got :)
My day did get a little brighter when my sweetie brought these flowers home. Our Whole Foods has the best floral department.
This tea is my really simplified version of the real thing. It is inexpensive to make and healthful. The cinnamon is believed to contain a wealth of health-promoting properties, from lowering cholesterol to boosting cognitive function. Ginger, found on the list of the World's Healthiest Foods, is said to lessen arthritis pain and protect against cancers.
Place three cups of water in a saucepan. Add 4 tea bags (just regular black tea), three 1/4 inch slices of freshly peeled ginger, and a couple of generous dashes of cinnamon. Bring to a simmer, then turn off, cover, and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Add your choice of sweetener (we like stevia drops) and half and half to taste.
I hope this brightens your day!
