Beating the Winter Blues Week: Ginger Tea

C – A simple Indian tea should get me warm.

I am going to beat these chills. I know I will. I love it when food has a good chemical reaction in my body. The moment I drink this tea, I know good things are happening to me.

First my tongue reacts to the pleasant taste. Sweet honey and spicy ginger, with a light taste of cardamom and fennel. It’s delicious.

The warm tea goes down smoothy and pleasantly. A warm, spicy feeling warms my throat. It’s soothing at the same time it warms. It’s a strange feeling, yet it’s good.

This is a delightful tea.
