Still got the flu?

$_1-2  Okay, so maybe you still have the flu and want to try something new other than garlic and onion? Or maybe you just want to add-on to the last tea. My boyfriend recently fought off the beginning of what could have been a horrible flu within 2-3 days. What? Yes. Fall is here, the weather is changing for reals this time, and people are beginning to get sick. It’s no joke that it’s irritable throat and stuffy nose season. I got chu. I found out about this new tea through my holistic doctor not long ago.  This tea does not smell like roses, but if you cover that nose, everything’s going to be alright. Sometimes, odor and taste don’t equal the same thing. Plus, I added on other things to make the smell and taste much more pleasant. Maybe, that will make you feel better.

Turmeric is a spice used in the Middle Eastern and Southeast Asia that looks similar to the ginger root. This is because it’s actually the cousin of the ginger, aka fam or family. People use it for either adding flavor to food or helping other people with certain health problems. Turmeric is also known to treat depression


Here’s the recipe:

  • Turmeric powder
  • Ginger
  • Black pepper
  • Vanilla extract (pure, none of that fake shit)
  • Honey
  • Cinnamon
  • Coconut, Cashew, or Almond milk

Tips: Um, what about moo milk (dairy milk)? Okay, yeah. Do what you want, I guess I can’t judge anyone. But, it is best if it is avoided as the other non-moo milk will work better at making that terrible flu go away.

How to use: First, grab a cup, a spoon, and a teaspoon measuring thingy. Boil choice of milk at medium heat. At the beginning of the heating process, do the following. Grab a small pinch of pepper and drop it inside the milk. Now, grab a teaspoon of turmeric and half of an inch of ginger root (or a teaspoon of ginger) to also drop into the milk. Finally, add a small dash of vanilla. Concentrate and keep stirring milk until it starts to boil. Once everything looks well mixed, pour the milk into a cup. Add as much honey as desired. For a final touch, dash some cinnamon on top and enjoy. Soon you’ll see it’s actually kinda tasty, just an interesting taste at first, but tastes pretty good.
