 +Various little tea recipes
  
 +===== Bay Leaf Tea ======
 +In Italy  Iwas told this is good for sore tummies. It also tastes really nice :)
 +
 +General bay leaf advice is that it's well worth it to buy good quality, as they'​re still cheap. The small dried ones in the supermarket are pretty low on flavour. They'​re also nice in a bath.
 +
 +==== Method ====
 +  - Take four-or-so big bay leaves and break them once or twice to help the flavour get out.
 +  - Place them in a small pot with enough cold water for two cups of tea (accounting for evaporation).
 +  - Boil for a few minutes, then let cool.
 +  - Pour into cups and add a spoon of sugar.
 +
 +===== Cardamom Tea =====
 +I first had this at an Afghan restaurant, and loved it immediately. Also goes really well with mint.
 +
 +==== Method ====
 +  - Take a tablespoon on cardamom pods and bruise them with a mortar and pestle.
 +  - Add to a small pot with enough cold water for two cups of tea (accounting for evaporation). Could probaly use a small quantity of milk instead if that's your thing?
 +  - Boil for, idunno, five minutes, to infuse the flavour into the water.
 +  - Pour water and cardamom into a teapot and add a black tea of your choice.
 +  - Let seep for a few minutes (depends on your tea).
