In India, where so much of our tea comes from, Tea is Tea – real, proper, genuine tea. Anything else is something else. Here, “tea” means something, anything, that is infused in hot water.
This tea will help to dry your nose and also balance yourself during rainy weather. It is a beautiful tea, please enjoy.

Pitta Tea, A Household Essential
Mix the following ingredients in the following ratios. Use Tablespoons to make a mixture that will last you for several days, or use Teaspoons if you want to make a couple of pots only.
2 parts fennel seeds, 2 parts coriander seeds, 1 part cardamom pods, 1 part dried mint
Mix these together.
Take about 1/2 Tblspn or more of the mixture PLUS 2 -3 slices fresh ginger for each cup of tea, pour over boiling water and leave to seep for 10 mins. (You can make it in a saucepan and keep it on a low simmer for 10 mins to extract more flavour.)
Sip and enjoy.
You can also use fresh mint. Make the mixture without the dried mint, and pop several stalks of fresh mint into the teapot when you are making the tea.
