Though I'm no expert, each one of these spices are said to hold different beneficial properties for health and well being. If anything, it will make you feel all warm and cosy inside, I can vouch for that.

Ingredients

  • 3 cinnamon
  • 0.25 black pepper
  • 1 clove
  • 1 mace
  • 1 cardamom
  • 1 nutmeg
  • 1 star anise
blend!

Step 1

Blend!

You can use tsp / tbsp / cups / buckets.. Anything you can get your hands on, but these ratios will make an amazing, comforting drink. Try to use whole spices where possible to get maximum flavour. Grind down and portion into empty tea bags, ( about half a tsp per bag ) and pop into a cup of steaming black tea. I also add a spoon of dulce de leche caramel, definitely not traditional! If you want to stay traditional, use condensed milk. Don't forget to pour between glasses from a height a few times before drinking to get that authentic frothy finish!
