Recipe: Digestive CCF Tea (Cumin Coriander Fennel)

Updated: Jun 12

CCF Tea is Ayurveda's magic tea. The combination of whole coriander, cumin and fennel seeds makes for an all-season, tridoshic blend. Ground spices can be used as well, but please note the measurements and preparation method slightly changes. If you don't have fennel, or you want more of a zing, you can replace it with grated ginger root, making it a CCG Tea.

CCF Tea is a great digestive tea- if you skip a meal, or if you're hungry too close to bedtime, opt for this tea to stimulate digestive fluids. Its naturally cleansing properties make it a great tea to drink in the springtime, and its cooling qualities make it highly suitable to add to your summer kitchen.
