Spiced Honey Tea (Kava) aka Golden Healing Elixir

Sub zero temperatures and snow flakes… winter has set in for the long haul

And my babies and I are poorly, sniffles, fever, cough, a chest infection and all things nasty.

If it sounds familiar (hope not) then you mamas know all too well how difficult feeding them is right now.

So I have a hot healing drink that I make for my poorly pumpkins that goes down a treat. Its such a relief to get this Healing Elixir trickle through their little systems.

Its packed full of compounds rich in powerful medicinal properties that are

  • anti inflammatory
  • anti bacterial
  • decongestive
  • super restorative.
  • I think it tastes good too. (Also great beautifying properties for mums)

I usually make them Gingerbread Men when bugged down to appease the unrelenting sugar cravings.. and I only offer these ginger and cinnamon filled little gentlemen.

I remember being given something similar by my mum growing up and we call it kava, but essentially it is Spiced Honey Tea..


  • 1 ltr Water
  • 1 tsp Ajwain
  • 2tsp Fennel Seeds
  • Stick of Cinnamon
  • 5 Cardamom pods
  • 1 Black Cardamom pod
  • 4 or 5 cloves
  • Few sprigs Saffron
  • Honey to Sweeten


  • Place 1ltr water to boil
  • Add all ingredients except for Saffron and Honey
  • Once boiling reduce to low heat and allow to simmer for 20 – 30 mins
  • Remove from heat and add honey also the sprigs of Saffron
  • Serve nice and warm

Simple and Super Healing, enjoy x
