The name, CCF, is an acronym that stands for this tea’s ingredients – Cumin, Coriander and Fennel. The holy trinity of digestive spices.
You may be most familiar with these seeds because they are very common kitchen herbs that help spice up any dish.
To make the tea – make a mix these spices in equal portions. You can store this in an airtight container for use at a later date. Add 1 tsp in a cup of water, simmer for a few minutes and drink anytime digestion is starting to feel a little off.
This could be if you’re experiencing low appetite, sluggishness, acidity, bloating or feeling heavy and sleepy after meals.
This tea is a great remedy to help support digestion any time of year – but particularly this festive season when we may over indulge in a few things here and there and experience these symptoms more often.
CCF tea simulates Agni (Digestive fire) just enough to calm down any digestive upset. It also encourages the body to break down ama (toxins) in the digestive tract and supports a subtle detoxification.
The combination in CCF tea is a perfectly balanced threesome that’s appropriate for all body types – Vata, Pitta and Kapha. We call this tridoshic in Ayurveda.
Its such a common and go-to remedy in Ayurveda because it really works.
