This is my new daily tea for Winter. The Holy Basil gives me an uplift yet is relaxing, the Rosemary helps my brain clear, and the ginger ignites all the medicine and has it's own super powers especially for inflamation.
I make it into a Tea Latte and add other powders for enrichening.
A touch of cocoa butter for taste and fat to make everything more bioavailable.

Ginger Root (Zingber officinale): Ginger has been valued as a zesty spice and a reliable medicinal herb for centuries, with the first recorded uses found in ancient Sanskrit and Chinese texts. It has also been utilized in Greek, Roman, Arabic, and Unani Tibb traditional medicine practices and is now a widely known therapeutic herb in most parts of the world. It is a flavoring agent in beer, soft drinks, candies, and a staple spice and condiment in many countries. Further, its therapeutic properties, ranging from alleviating upset stomach to providing pain relief, are now being substantiated through a vast array of scientific studies. Ginger was prized in love spells for its 'heating up' qualities and has been considered a love herb since ancient times. It was believed that ginger could hasten the success of any spell and that planting a ginger root would ensure financial abundance.
In the book Herbal Emissaries: Bringing Chinese Herbs to the West, Steven Foster writes:
"Ginger is truly an herbal emissary in the broadest sense. Perhaps no other herb, except garlic, crosses all barriers, cultural, historical, and geographic–food versus medicine, Western versus Oriental, scientific versus folk tradition. Ginger is a universal herb in all respects."
Ginger has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), and is believed to effect lung, spleen, heart, and stomach meridians.16
