2 tablespoons dried ginger root
2 tablespoons dried orange peel
1 tablespoon cinnamon chips
1 teaspoon peppercorns
1/2 teaspoon hulled cardamom or two crushed cardamom pods
1/4 teaspoon cloves (about 3 to 5 cloves)
10 to 20 grams astragalus
6 to 9 grams sliced reishi
10 to 20 grams codonopsis

Simmer the spices in the water for about 15 minutes. (If you’d like to add black tea, add 1/8 cup after removing from the heat and steep for not more than 3 minutes.) Strain out the herbs, add warmed milk (I suggest at least 1/4 cup) and honey to taste. Enjoy this delicious fall tonic, and the wonderful feeling of giving your kids a tasty, nourishing treat!
