Sip on this fire-y digestive tonic before your meals to stimulate your digestive fire.

 

Qi energy is the invisible (yet palpable) force that animates our body, mind, cells and organs, and drives their multitude of functions. We love our Qi herbs here at SuperFeast HQ, as historically these herbs have been used to tonify our metabolic fire so we may access greater daily energy and gain higher levels of vitality. And this delish tonic will do just that! We've got a slightly easier version and a slightly takes-a-bit-more-time version for you to try out.

 

Let's go!

  

Ingredients

1 tsp QI blend
1 tsp fennel seeds
1 tsp honey
1 tsp grated ginger
Spring water

 

Method

Hardcore Herbalist Version
  1. Simmer fennel and ginger in 1.5 cups of water for 20 mins (use a timer so you don’t forget!)
  2. Strain and stir in honey and QI blend
The I-Don’t-Have-Time-For-That Version
  1. Steep your fennel and ginger in the teapot 3-5 mins
  2. Strain and stir in honey and QI blend

 

QI blend is the brand new addition to the SuperFeast apothecary, jam-packed full of Qi herbs to mobilise energy. You can check it out here.
