One common way to experience the benefits of fenugreek seeds is by drinking a tasty cup of fenugreek tea. Fenugreek seeds and fenugreek tea have been around forever, even King Tut was found with fenugreek seeds in his tomb. Fenugreek tea is known for its slight peppery flavor and is great to consume at anytime during the day but most prefer it at nights or after a meal as it helps with digestion and lowers the rate at which your body will absorb sugars and fats. It is also great to enjoy a nice warm serving of fenugreek tea during cold season, it is known to help prevent colds and will help you get rid of that phlegm and reduce any nasal congestion.
Types of Fenugreek Tea
To me the best type of fenugreek tea is the homemade kind made from freshly dried fenugreek seeds, but there also plenty of great fenugreek tea available on the market and I imagine that there will be a lot more to come.
How to Make Fenugreek Tea
Fenugreek Tea is extremely easy to make, following my steps below you should have no trouble.
1. Pick up some fresh fenugreek seeds from your local health food store or find an online retailer. You are going to need about a teaspoon and half for around 10 ounces of fenugreek tea.
2. Figure out how much fenugreek tea you are going to want to make. I usually make around 20 ounces and save some for later.
3. Grab a small pot, (any pot will actually do, small ones are just easier to manage) add 20 ounces of water and let it boil. As soon as the water comes to a boil add your fenugreek seeds.
4. Let your fenugreek seeds sit in the boiling water for around 20 minutes and then remove the pot from the stove and cover.
5. Once your water has begun to slightly cool down you are ready to enjoy your fenugreek tea. Simply grab a strainer and dump your water trough the strainer and into another pot so that your fenugreek seeds are removed.
That is all there is too it. You may wish to drink your tea while it is nice and hot or let it cool down, its all a matter of personal preference when it comes to fenugreek tea.
