Australian chef flip shelton suggests spicing up a pot of tea "by adding 1-2 teaspoons of this blend with the tea leaves". The tea can be drunk black or white. From her fabulous book 'green: modern vegetarian recipes'. I have also posted her Spiced Coffee recipe. Both have been posted for the post-ZWT Healthy for the Holidays Challenge. Drunk without milk, this tea is 14 calories and has 0.5g fat. This Spiced Tea and the Spiced Coffee are both great low fat choices!

  1. Combine all the ingredients.
  2. For a more intense flavour and aroma, put the spices into small pan, preferably non-stick, over a low heat and dry-fry them very briefly, stirring or lightly tossing frequently so that they don't burn.
  3. Store in a small airtight container. If you have dry-fried the ingredients, make sure they are at room temperature before transferring them to the storage container.
