We know how much this is enjoyed after class. It's also has amazing benefits (see below).
Since alas we aren't able to meet in person, here is the recipe. As long as you are making it, might as well make it by the gallon. Store in a glass mason jar after it cools, and heat as you need.
Spices and their benefits:
