Last weekend I attended an Ayurveda workshop at the Toronto Yoga Conference. The teacher suggested drinking CCF tea to aid digestion and internal cleansing. CFF stands for Cumin Coriander and Fennel. After doing a bit of research I found that CCF tea has many other benefits such as:
- stokes the metabolism and the digestive fire
- restores vitality
- helps to purifies the blood.
- reduces agitation and inflammation
- calms and clarifies the mind
Not only is it full of benefits but it’s also easy to make and yummy.
• Boil 3 cups of water
• Add 1/2 tsp of each seed
• Let steep for 5 minutes
• Strain and serve
The tea can be stored in a thermos or in the refrigerator. You can drink it throughout the day, up to four cups. If there is a spice that you don’t like as much you can use less of it.
