Milk

Cayenne Tea

4-tea

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 cup boiling water or hot Milk

Stir the Cayenne into the liquid and sip slowly. This will warm the whole system and is an old remedy for warding off disease.

If the taste is too strong, take Cayenne in pill form, or try ground ginger with honey – a deliciously warming drink.
