Yogi Tea

Whenever I feel a cold coming on I make a batch of yogi tea.  I often let it simmer on the stove for a few days, just adding water as we take from it. The combination of cloves, cardamom, ginger and cinnamon work to kill any virus, bacteria or probably even parasites.  It also makes the house smell good too.

In a large pot add: 

2 quarts of water
15 cloves
20 cardamom pods (slightly crushed)
15 black peppercorns
5- 2 inch cinnamon sticks
8 slices of peeled ginger root
Allow to simmer in a pot for about 30 minutes, adding water as it evaporates.
I like mine plain, but you can add some honey or almond milk if you like.  I leave it on the stove or simmering in a crockpot for a couple days.
