The Morning After Tea (Q&A)

Dear Doctors,

The credit crunch is forcing us to entertain ourselves …. at home.

I would also like to add that we are regular readers of your blog. The other night my husband had an epiphany: “Hey Suzie, I just had an epiphany, lets ask Divine Tastes what they recommend for our home entertainment?”

My question to you is: What do you recommend?

Yours truly,

Susie & John Blob - British couple from - Britain.


Dear Susie & John

Applause for “Britain”.

To Him: I assume by home entertainment you meant 70 inch flat TV, full HD Dolby Surround system, xbox 360… beer with the friends.

However, she probably hoped you meant for something a little bit more romantic – with her. Now, though a tea tasting evening with your wife (on a frequent basis) might be exciting …. if you live in Alaska, drinking tea before your “entertainment” might help boost your game play.

Examples of arousing herbs are ginseng, roseroot, cinnamon, cayenne, cardamom, ginger, damiana, horny goat weed, catuaba, maca, muira pauma and cuscuta.
The herbs can arouse you both by their taste, their scent and by a physiological stimulation on the nerves and blood circulation.

It is equally important to remember the Four Fingers rule…Eat, Exercise, Relax, and Sleep for a better sex life.
Better sex doesn't just involve technique. Keeping a fit mind and body can increase your enjoyment of bedroom antics. A cup of tea can help with both body and mind!

Don't forget to use some tea light candles for a more romantic atmosphere….

The recipe for the world famous Arousal Tea*:

Use unsalted, raw peanuts which still have their skins. Look for stringy, old, but not dried root ginger rather than plump, young, juicy ginger.

20 raw peanuts
5-6 slices of root ginger
Tea of your choice
850ml (1.5 pints) of water

Wash the ginger and cut five or six slices across the root, each about 3mm (1/8 in) thick. Roughly chop these slices. Take 20 raw peanuts with their skins and use a pestle and mortar or food processor to grind them. Alternatively, you can chop them up roughly with a knife.
Put the ground nuts and chopped ginger into a teapot and add tea leaves to taste. Bring the water to a fast boil and pour into the pot. Leave to stand for 2-3 minutes before drinking.

Caution: Individual results may vary.

To Her: Call me… ;-)
