Tea-Time at Ficlet o'Clock


Chicory Ginger Maté

2 tsp. yerba maté
1 tsp. roasted chicory root
1/2 tsp. ginger powder
1/2 tsp. stevia leaf

Add ingredients to one MiniMinit filter (see left). Steep in a 8 – 16 oz. mug of hot water, not quite boiled. Steep for 5 – 10 minutes until a rich brown.

Remove filter, slide off its bar, and discard. Enjoy!

      While I appreciate your taking the time to tell me that, I am not using the anglicized spelling but the correct, original spelling.
