A wide range of jungle herbs and spices
Slice of lime
Spoonful of honey (optional)
What to do:
Forage in the jungle with a traditional medicine man or woman, choosing appropriate herbs and spices.
Wash chosen delicacies.
Place in a large mug and add just boiled water.
This tea is a speciality from Bukit Lawang in Sumatra, and you don't really need to forage with anyone as it's served at most guesthouses and cafe's. Also, it's unlikely that most of us in the rest of the world will have access to these ingredients, or for that matter Sumatran medicine men/women!
However, I wanted to add this gorgeous photo to show:
1) how beautifully the tea is presented, and
2) to highlight that round the corner from this special area of the world, is mass destruction. The palm oil farms have taken over, and what's left of the jungle is becoming increasingly rare.
Please reconsider the impact of purchasing palm oil products.
Not only for your own health but also for the health of the planet.

Fast food chains, it seems, need to seriously buck their ideas up. WholeFoods Market - what's going on with you?
