Warming Winter Spice Tea
------------------------
Decoct:
2 parts roasted dandelion root
1/2 part cinnamon bark
1/2 part dried gingerroot
1/2 part decorticated (hulled) cardamom seeds
1/2 part star anise
Raw honey to taste

Slowly heat 4 cups of spring water in a pot. Put the ingredients into a
mortar and with a pestle crush the herbs slightly. Or put them in a
blender and turn it on briefly, just enough to release some of the aromas.
