      I often make myself a brew of ginger, chilli and garlic - especially when feeling a little under the weather. I find it to be a good healer. You have introduced me to the idea of adding cardamon which I will now try. Thanks

      I love all kinds of teas. Sometimes I just boil ginger. I also have mint growing indoors - that's good too.

      My cousin just brought me green tea from India - excellent! I will bookmark this so I can enjoy it this winter.
