I was given the chance of tasting Calmer Sutra Tea and I have to say that it is wonderful. I was given Chai Tea, Peppermyntle Tea and a jar of Calmer Sutra Ginger infused Honey.

First, I have to say that I love being a blogger and I love being able to try new products and bring them to my readers. It makes my day when my readers let me know that they have tried the product on my recommendations. Today I have a new product for you.

We eat a lot of salmon. I usually buy smoked salmon but every once in a while I will buy some fresh salmon. The best way to cook it in my way of thinking is by pan searing it..

I go in streaks were I will drink lemon water in the morning before I do anything else. It happens every once in awhile. I would like to do it every morning but I don't always seem to remember. I found a wonderful recipe for a cleansing lemon drink with a punch in Get Naked in the Kitchen by Briana Santoro. This book has wonderful recipes in it and I love that they give a story behind each recipe.

I love the smell of gingerbread cooking in the oven. Nothing beats the taste of a fresh ginger cookie.
Did you know that Ginger has other uses then just for baking?
The October issue of the Natural Herbal Living Magazine talks all about Ginger.

I am a big tea drinker... love tea and Chai tea especially...
I have at least once cup a day if not more often.
I have thought many times to make my own and today was the day..
Maybe because it is -40F degrees out and we have 10 feet of snow outside...
Ok maybe not -40 but at least -7F and we probably only have about 3 feet but it felt like 10 feet when I was shoveling today.
So a cup of Chai just hit the spot.
I decided that I would make my Chai with white tea instead of black.
I found a few recipes that sounded good to make a recipe.
and this is what I came up with...
Homemade White Chai Concentrate
4 1/2 cup water
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp peppercorn
3/4 of fresh nutmeg
1/4 tsp anise
1 star anise
2 cinnamon sticks
1/2 in fresh ginger
1 tsp orange peel
1/2 tsp lemon peel
1 vanilla pod
8 white tea bags
1 tbsp honey
Cheesecloth and twine
Place cheesecloth on table and add peppercorn, nutmeg, cardamom, anise, ginger, nutmeg orange peel, lemon peel and vanilla pod (cut in thirds). Bring up edges of cheesecloth and tie around spices. Set aside.
In pot place water and brown sugar, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer. Add tea bags, spice mixture, star anise and cinnamon sticks. Simmer for 20 minutes. Cool and place in jar. Makes approximately 1 quart. Can be kept in the refrigerator for up to a week.
