“This has nothing to do with the British cooking queen, Nigella Lawson, but with the spice seed, nigella (sometimes called black cumin, but unrelated to cumin). This spice, to be found in middle-Eastern and Indian markets, has been traditionally used for both culinary and medicinal purposes; current studies suggest it may serve as an immune-system booster and is effective in treating asthma and whooping cough (information courtesy of The Herb Companion website, I make NO medical claims!!). I've tried it, I like it (with the dash of vanilla), so I'm posting it here.”

  3. Pour hot water over and allow to steep 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Remove teaball and discard contents.
