Ingredients

  • 50g/2oz brown sugar
  • 4 black cardamom pods
  • 1stick of cinnamon
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 1 star anise
  • ½ teaspoon mixed spice
  • 1 teaspoon rosewater, to taste

Method

Lovers, beware: inspired by the rich abundance of the intensely scented spices found on the trail from Persia to India, this aromatic concoction combines ingredients said to have powerful aphrodisiac properties…

Put all the ingredients into your teapot, fill it with hot (but not scalding) water, stir to dissolve the sugar and leave to infuse until the tea is to your liking. Serve in a lovely tea glass, pouring the liquid through a tea strainer. Inhale deeply as you sip.
