Kitchen cabinets have a habit of accumulating a lot little jars, most of which contain spices and seasonings. If you're worrying about working your way through them before they lose their flavour, make like the folks at Extra Crispy and use them to make some "ad-libbed teas".

Click the link below to view all of their tasty suggestions, but here are three spicy ideas to get you going:
- Cinnamon stick + sliced ginger + a pinch of turmeric = a spicy, anti-inflammatory cuppa.
- Red chilli pepper + a couple of cloves + honey = soothing sips for oncoming colds.
- Cardamom pods + sliced ginger + a few peppercorns = I just think this would taste good, especially with a little coconut milk.
The fun isn't limited to the spice rack -- according the Extra Crispy, your compost pile can get in on the action. Apparently carrot tops, fennel and celery leaves all make a really nice tea. What a world.
