This is a ‘help you feel good’ tea that aids digestion, stimulates sluggish circulation and refreshes the mind.
Watch the video for Pukka’s ‘Forgive me I have sinned’ tea recipe:
- Fresh peppermint leaves 1 handful (or 1 tbsp dry)
- Fresh ginger root 3-5 slices
- Fresh rosemary 2 sprigs (or 1 tsp dry)
- Turmeric root powder ¼ tsp (or a sprinkle) per cup
- Angostura bitters a dash per cup
- Honey 1 tsp per cup
This will serve 2–3 cups of entirely confessional tea.
Put the mint, ginger and rosemary in a pot. Add 500ml/18fl oz freshly boiled filtered water. Leave to steep for 10–15 minutes, then strain. Add the turmeric, bitters and honey. Breathe in the aromas while you drink this, they will help you feel better.
Like a good friend, peppermint is always welcome. Its light ascendant menthol awakens digestion and clears sluggishness. It can encourage a fresh perspective when things seem to be blocking your way.
Considered to be good for everybody, fresh ginger moves your energy upwards and outwards waking up your whole system. Its sweet-spicy nature diffuses any clouds obscuring your view.
Better on its own than you might think, rosemary is famous for helping you think more clearly by removing a muzzy head. It literally pulls you up by your socks.
A renowned liver cleanser, turmeric speeds up the metabolism of alcohol and fats, making your day a whole lot easier, a whole lot faster.
A classic herbal concoction. A dash of these super herbs can awaken your digestion and transport you to another world (far away from your hangover).
