Uncommon hot drinks

Fall drinks that keep you warm in the cold

  • Cardamom Coffee

Arabic coffee is also called coffee with cardamom, which is both invigorating and neutralizing to caffeine.
Cardamom beans are rich in essential oils and contain calcium, phosphorus, iron, zinc and B vitamins.
When immersed in a hot liquid, these bioactive substances are released and interact with the chemical components of the coffee beans.

This kind of coffee is a good idea to drink your favorite beverage and get extra warmth from the spices in the cold season.

150 ml water
1 tbsp ground coffee
2 cardamom beans
½ tsp brown sugar if desired

Boil the coffee with cardamom in a coffee pot, pour the ground beans and corns into the water and heat slowly until foamy.

If you do not have a turkey, boil the water, wait a minute after boiling, pour the coffee with cardamom water and let stand for 4-5 minutes.

If you are not sure that you will like this coffee, try it with a single seed of cardamom to start with.

Masala Tea

Indian masala is an ayurvedic beverage that blends the delicate texture of milk with the aroma of spices and the benefits of black tea.
