Fennel & Ginger Tea
In the evening when I need a little something to settle my stomach and ensure a good nights sleep I go for fennel and ginger tea. It could not be more simple to make. Put the kettle on and while the pot is coming to a boil add a few slices of fresh ginger to a cup with half a teaspoon of fennel seeds. Pour over the boiling water and allow to steep for 5 minutes or so. I sip the tea with the ginger in place and chew any fennel seeds that do not drop to the bottom of the cup. If you like a little sweetness in your tea, honey is perfect companion to fennel and ginger.
