I am frequently asked if I ever drink coffee and black
teas, or if I always stick to green tea. I do drink
green tea every day, but I also love a good cup of full-bodied
coffee. I usually reserve my coffee for weekends as
a *treat*. Lately I have been experimenting with adding
various spices to my coffee for fun and flavor when
brewing it at home.
have added ~1 rounded teaspoon of ground cardamon seeds,
cinnamon, or nutmeg to the coffee grounds when brewing
addition, I have added ~1 rounded tablespoon of pre-mixed
chai to the coffee grounds and then mixed a small amount
of unflavored soy milk and just a drop or two of honey
with the brewed coffee/chai for a really robust drink
that is not too sweet for me like all pre-mixed chai.
All the spices in chai (cardamom, cinnamon, ginger,
anisestar seed, and cloves) have some anti-cancer activity,
as does the black tea used in chai.
