Here's a Ayurvedic tea that will warm you up and soothe coughs and sore throats like magic!
What you need:
4 cups water
2 pieces of licorice root (called "mulethi" if you're buying it from your favorite Indian grocer)
2 (or more) slices of raw ginger root
What to do:
Boil the ingredients together or steep in your thermos on the way to work and sip happily. No need for honey as licorice root is known to contain compounds 30-50 times sweeter than sugar!
Thanks to Rul, my favorite Ayurvedic consultant for this delicious recipe!
