An Amazing Digestive Tea

CCF Tea, Ayurveda’s Little Secret Miracle

Okay, yes, it’s a bit strong to call tea a miracle, but this simple and tasty tea is pretty darn close!

CCF stands for Coriander, Cumin, and Fennel, three spices that are digestive superheroes. Combined, they make a daily drink that improves digestion, aids healthy elimination and detox, and supports the immune system, among other great benefits.

Let’s look at the individual herbs in this blend.

Coriander, Coriandrum sativum

  • Relieves gas
  • Improves digestion
  • Cools the stomach, soothes hyperacidity
  • Tones the urinary system
  • Increases nutrient absorption
  • Soothes inflammation

The leaves of this plant, known as Cilantro, are also medicinal, traditionally used for digestion and detoxification. And they are an essential ingredient in salsa recipes!

Cumin, Cuminum cyminum

  • Stimulates digestion
  • Relieves gas and bloating
  • Calms muscle spasms
  • Flushes toxins
  • Soothes inflammation and congestion of the mucus membranes
  • Improves elimination

Fennel, Foeniculum vulgare

  • Improves digestion
  • Relieves gas
  • Relieves cramping (both digestive and uterine)
  • Aids mental focus
  • Supports lymphatic flow
  • Increases breast milk production
  • Soothes symptoms of IBS

Making CCF Tea

To blend the tea mixture:

Combine equal parts by weight of Coriander, Cumin, and Fennel whole seeds. Store in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid.

To brew the tea:

  • Add 1 teaspoon of the seed mixture for every 8oz of water
  • Place seed/tea mixture and cold water in a non-reactive saucepan
  • Bring to a boil
  • Turn off heat and cover
  • Let stand 15 minutes
  • Strain and drink

Best enjoyed hot! You can add a little fresh minced Ginger Root while the tea is cooking for extra digestive fire!

 Drink a cup after each meal to encourage healthy digestion, prevent gas and heartburn, and to cleanse and refresh the mouth.
