Healing Apple Tea

Merry meet, dear guests! Welcome!

Since the winter season is nearly among us, we must prepare our minds, bodies, and souls. To keep them healthy and positive. Once the winter season is here, dark days will surely feel longer, as well as that winter chill. The possible cold and flu is at its strongest. 

With that being written, I have a wonderful tea recipe that has helped me for years. I give you, my healing tea. 

Healing Tea

  • Tsp of Saffron
  • 1/4 tsp of Cinnamon (or stick)
  • Apple Cider
  • Plenty of honey!

Brew the saffron and cinnamon in half cup of hot water. Add in the honey. Then lastly stir in the apple cider when the brew has cooled ever so slightly. As the cup is brewing I chant:

Saffron heals the mind. Apple heals the heart. Cinnamon to strengthen. Honey to guard. 

This magical recipe should  grant you health, as well as beneficial immune boosting properties!

What is a little tea without the sweets?! I love to pair this tea with delicious homemade chocolate cookies! There’s something about the apple flavor that compliments the chocolate.

Chocolate Cookies Recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chunks

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat chopped chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl in 20-second increments, stirring between each, until almost melted; do not overheat. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.

  2. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla on high speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; beat in melted chocolate. Mix in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chocolate chunks.

  3. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough 2 to 3 inches apart onto baking sheets. Bake, rotating sheets halfway through, until cookies are shiny and crackly yet soft in centers, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on baking sheets 10 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy! And be sure to add a little of your own magick to these delicious cookies!

Friendship Tea

Hello! And welcome!

Since the holiday season is approaching, and festive parties are surely to be attended, it would be only right to bring or make a delicious blend of magickal tea!

I have here a wonderful brew that I love to create when I know I will be meeting new and hopeful friends. This is a magickal tea recipe that will draw people close and open the doors to new friendship.

When you meet with new and/or old friends, warm up the scones and gather for some tea!

Friendship Tea

  • Tsp of Hibiscus
  • Tsp of Jasmine
  • Tsp White tea
  • Lemon zest

And honey

On special occasions, I love to add a beautiful orchid.

Heat water to 170 – 185 degrees. Pour over the mix, and brew for 3 minutes before enjoying. If you want a stronger brew, steep the flowers and zest for 5 minutes, then add the white tea.

As the tea is brewing, I chant over the pot:

Brew of flowery delight, bring together friendships might.

A delicious scone recipe to compliment this tea, would be a sweet fruit scone.

Sugar Raspberry Scone

Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet. Then little by little, add wet to dry. Knead the dough thrice. Pull apart dough to create a scone shape. Place onto parchment paper on a baking pan, add raspberries and sugar on surface. Place in 400 degrees oven, for 15-18 mins.
