RECIPE: Spice Teas

SaveAGram spices are versatile and can be enjoyed in teas as well as in your cooking. Here are a few of our favourite simple combinations, for a single cup (scale up if you're making a pot). You can also get adventurous and invent your own blends based on what you like.

None of these recipes have sugar, but if you prefer a sweeter tea, feel free to add jaggery / honey / sugar.

We recommend spices are left to infuse for a minimum of 10 minutes, but the longer you infuse them, the more flavourful the teas will be.
