Herbal Tea: Cardamom, Coriander, Fennel Tea 

This tea is excellent for balancing Pitta, and is a great thirst quencher to take after physical exertion. 

Coriander and fennel have a cooling tendency, while cardamom is heating. This combination makes a good year-round brew. In the summer, you may substitute 1/4 teaspoon chamomile leaves for the cardamom to provide a totally cooling trinity. The actions of all three herbs are carminative ( relieve intestinal gas and distension) and diuretic (promote urine flow ). Fennel also relieves muscular spasms. 

Ingredients:
1/4 tsp cardamom seeds 
1/4 tsp coriander seeds 
1/4 tsp fennel seeds 
2 cups boiling water 
1 tsp maple syrup or unrefined brown sugar (optional) 

Directions:
Warm a teapot by rinsing with hot tap water. 
Place all seeds into the warmed pot and cover with boiling water. 
Steep for 5 minutes and allow brew to cool. 
Strain and add maple syrup or brown sugar, if desired. 

Serves 2
