Recipe: Autumn Spiced Lauku Tea
With crispness in the air and the leaves slowly turning to gold, we thought an autumn-inspired herbal infusion would be just the thing to fill us with vitamin C, warm our bodies, and get us ready for fall. This recipe is perfect with our Brigita's Daylight Blend, a tea already bursting with naturally-dried organic apples and fermented apple leaves.
As we like to think of recipes more like guidelines, here are the relaxed instructions for making your own Autumn Spiced Lauku Tea. Feel free to tweak and tease to your liking. This recipe makes 5–6 cups and will store beautifully in the fridge for a week.
AUTUMN SPICED LAUKU TEA
- 4–5 hearty pinches of Brigita's Daylight Blend
- 2–3 cinnamon sticks
- the peel of a fresh orange
- a dime-size piece of candied ginger
- 1 c. unsweetened cranberry juice
- Put all the ingredients into a small uncovered sauce pan or in a stovetop tea kettle.
- Fill with water; one cup per pinch of tea used.
- Warm slowly over medium heat. Just before boiling, turn off the heat but leave on the burner for 10–15 minutes. At this point, your home will smell AMAZING.
- Carefully strain the tea through a sieve and either serve right away or store in the fridge. Garnish with a cinnamon stick or slice of orange. Enjoy!
