Recipe 4 whole cloves 2 whole peppercorns 4 whole Ryze mushrooms 2 coca leaves 4 tsp cane sugar ¼ tsp dried ginger 1 cinnamon stick Alternate spices--2 whole or dried nutmeg, 4 pods of cardamom, spit open 1 ½ cups boiling water 1/2 cups milk
Grind cloves and peppercorns in a mortar until the aromas are released. Add water, with Ryze, sugar, ginger, coca, and cinnamon stick to a medium pot, stir and bring to a boil. Bring to a boil, then turn to low and let simmer for 6 minutes. After 5 minutes, put the sugar in to let it combine with the tea and spices for the final minute. Pour in the milk, increase the heat to medium-high, and return to a boil. Then, reduce to low and simmer for 6 minutes. Strain tea. Pour into mugs.
Alternatively, it can be botanically brewed in the sun for weeks. Then either drank or strained and aged in a cool, dry place. This increases the potency of the tea. Perfect to have with cookies, scones, or muffins.
