Since having my HotSpot installed, I am truly addicted to teas and infusions! I have always struggled to drink enough water on a daily basis, and now I am drinking all kinds of antioxidant elixirs on a regular basis! And, it is so super easy with an instant boiling water tap, even if I have just odd bits of fruit, I will throw them in a pot and pour hot boiling water over it to make fragrant warming drinks.
The best thing about the HotSpot faucet though, is that you can simple make just one cup at a time! So, there is no excuse not to have that warm cup of healing tea. In this series I'm going to show you how I prepare my favourite teas. First up: Jamu!
Jamu, a tea that heals from inside out
I encountered my first Jamu in Bali, Indonesia, and it was love at first sip! This medicinal drink heals from the inside out and tastes wonderfully delectable too. I am sure that you will enjoy this anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cure-all concoction as well!
What you need:
- 125g fresh turmeric root, cleaned and peeled, roughly chopped
- 25g fresh ginger root, cleaned and peeled, roughly chopped
- 475 mL coconut water
- 4 Tbsp fresh lime juice
- 2 Tbsp manuka honey*
*Manuka honey is a great healthy way to sweeten any tea. Try to buy the best quality you can afford with a high manuka factor.
Step 1: Blend it!
Place the turmeric, ginger, coconut water and 475mL of boiling water from your HotSpot tap in a blender and blend until smooth.
Step 2: Bring to a simmer
Tip into a saucepan and place over low heat, and bring to a simmer. Simmer slowly for about 15 -20 minutes.
Step 3: Bring some extra taste
Remove from heat and add the lime juice and honey. Add more lime or honey if you like to taste.
Step 4: Strain it
Strain through a fine mesh sieve lined with a cheese cloth. Drink hot or cold, and store in the fridge.
