Health Tip: This tea is EXTREMELY SUPPORTIVE if you are going to (hopefully infrequently! 😍) 'indulge' in alcohol or sugary desserts/drinks etc. It not only helps your liver to cope, but your adrenal glands, pancreas and thyroid will all thank you, as the cinnamon mimics insulin in the body, so helps to stabilise blood sugar imbalance!

METHODS FOR ALL VARIATIONS
VARIATION 1: HOT SPICE UP YOUR LIFE TEA DRINK
Sprinkle your spices into a cup/mug of boiling (preferably filtered) water from the kettle and stir well to dissolve the spices and coconut oil (if you add that), You are welcome to add a dash of maple syrup or xylitol (natural not artificial low GL sugar-like sweetener)
VARIATION 2: COLD 'SPICE UP YOUR LIFE' LATTE:
Sprinkle your spices into a glass of milk and mix thoroughly. Better yet, pop it all in a blender, for a creamer, frothier option. Add a dash of coconut cream, or organic fresh double cream, to the mix for true 'silky decadence'!
VARIATION 3: WARMING 'SPICE UP YOUR LIFE' CUPPA SOUP:
If you add cayenne pepper it is a Pinch (according to taste) (approx eighth of a teaspoon) in a Cafetiere (plunge pot) OR straight into a large mug, and drink in the morning and afternoon. Add the following to your hot spice up your life tea base recipe and mix well:
Cayenne pepper, black pepper, Swiss Marigold Bouillon.
Add a sprinkle of basil, or Italian seasoning adds that 'extra special' quality :-)
VARIATION 4: GET GOING! 'SPICE UP YOUR LIFE' POO-BREW:
The Spice up your Life Tea is also the base in Mary-Lou's "poo-brew" recipe if you are constipated! Simply add half a cup of organic linseeds and a dash of Black pepper to the tea once it is cooled, let it soak for about 3 hours or more, and then, using a fork, beat in about 2 - 3 tablespoons of organic extra virgin olive oil till it is frothy. An excellent addition is 3 tablespoons of 'Cherry Active juice' to not only improve the flavour, but the Montmorency cherries in this juice are a POWERHOUSE of vitamin C which can promote a laxative effect, once a specific quantity is reached (we all have a different 'threshold' on that quantity) Also GREAT IMMUNE AND SKIN SUPPORT!
Have 1 tablespoon of the brew each hour or so, till you GET GOING! ...can mix it into food after serving, if not palatable.
😀SERVE & ENJOY!!!😀
