As I just wrote...


There still is:

cardamom*

It is said that with its antioxidant and diuretic properties may lower blood pressurehelps fighting cancer; has anti-inflammatory qualities; helps with digestive problems, including ulcers; prevents bad breath and cavities (by eating entire cardamom pods); has antibacterial effects (fights several common strains of bacteria); improves breathing and oxygen use (used in aromatherapy enhances your body’s ability to use oxygen). Cardamom extract may also prevent liver enlargement and anxious behaviours (because low blood levels of antioxidants have been linked to the development of anxiety and other mood disorders).

and:

ginger*

Ginger is commonly known to help various types of stomach problems, including motion sicknessmorning sicknesscolic, upset stomach, gas, diarrhoeairritable bowel syndrome (IBS), nausea, nausea caused by cancer treatment, nausea caused by HIV/AIDS treatment, nausea and vomiting after surgery, as well as loss of appetite. Other uses include pain relief from rheumatoid arthritis (RA), osteoarthritismenstrual pain, and other conditions. Some people pour on their skin fresh juice to treat burns. The oil made from ginger is sometimes applied to the skin to relieve pain. Ginger extract is also applied to the skin to prevent insect bites.

and then:

cloves*


As we know cloves contain important nutrients; is high in antioxidants (obviously... :-))); may protect against cancer; can kill off bacteria (its antimicrobial properties can help stop the growth of microorganisms like bacteria including E. coli); may improve liver health (yeah!); â€¨

    @lucjah - I am a tea fanatic too and cloves, cardamom and cinnamon with thyme are my favorite spices. I barely even use actual tea leaves anymore.

    Have you heard of hibiscus tea? That's a post by itself.
