Fall feels cozy to me as I put on fuzzy slippers and a hoodie to go out for stargazing and planetary meditation while there’s a chill in the air. Another lovely fall meditation is making spiced tea from scratch. I converse with the spices like I do the planets. They share their secrets and sensuous enjoyment of life.
1 gallon of water
2 tsp black peppercorns
2 tsp whole cloves
4 tsp cardamom pods – crushed open
2 oz fresh ginger root – sliced
6 cinnamon sticks
Boil for a few minutes then add 1 tsp of black tea and let steep for a few hours. Strain and serve (honey and soy milk is my favorite). Store the tea in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Freeze the used spices as you can use them to make another batch of tea with half the amount of water (half a gallon). Enjoy!
