It must be because I'm English – but I love drinking tea.  One of my favourites is Indian Chai, so I thought I'd try making my own Paleo Tea blend. Since I've given up soft drinks, all I drink is water and tea – so it's nice to be able to experiment with a few different blends.

Drinking tea is a comforting ritual for me, and creating my own blend adds a personal touch to the experience. Making Paleo Tea allows me to enjoy a rich, flavourful drink without any additives or processed ingredients. Plus, it's surprisingly simple and quick to prepare.

  • Teapot
  • Strainer

Making your own tea blend at home is not only cost-effective but also allows you to customize the flavours to your liking. The combination of black tea with spices like cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger creates a warming, spicy beverage that's perfect for any time of the day. You can also adjust the quantities of each ingredient to suit your taste preferences.

Experimenting with different spices can lead to discovering new favourite blends. For instance, you might try adding star anise for a hint of licorice flavour or fennel seeds for a slightly sweet undertone. The possibilities are endless, and each blend brings a unique taste experience.

Moreover, drinking homemade Paleo Tea has health benefits. The spices used in this recipe, such as ginger and cinnamon, have anti-inflammatory properties and can aid digestion. By creating your own blend, you can enjoy these benefits without any of the additives found in store-bought teas.
