Black Sesame and Goji Berry Tea

Submitted by: Melissa

Recipe Ingredients:
1 cup Black Sesame Seeds
2 tbsp Goji Berries (rinsed)
3 cups Water
Brown Sugar (Raw, Unprocessed) or substitute Agave, Maple Syrup or Honey

Cooking Directions:
1.  Bring sesame seeds, goji berries and water to a boil and then reduce to a simmer partially covered for about 20 to 30 minutes until 1 cup of tea remains. If it does not cook down in 30 minutes, the flame is too low. Strain tea and sweeten to taste.

2.  Black sesame is calming and great to drink as part of your morning routine. or at night if you have trouble winding down. Black sesames nourish and calm the adrenals, as do the goji berries. Brown sugar is full of minerals as are the sesame seeds, so this formula is rich in calcium and good for the bones. Brown sugar can be avoided for those sensitive to sugar, but the seeds are bitter. Agave, maple syrup and hone are also suitable sweeteners.
