Better known amongst Haitians as Té Po Lay, this hot brew is very effective in relieving stomach pain, especially bloating. This recipe only calls for the skin of the garlic and not the actual garlic.

Garlic tea


3 cups water
1 garlic bulb
3 cloves
1 pinch of salt
1 teaspoon honey


Bring the water to a boil. Peel the garlic bulb and each of the pods. Put all the pieces of skin in the boiling water. Keep the garlic cloves in the freezer for future use. Add cloves and pinch of salt. Reduce stove to medium and let simmer for ten minutes. Turn off the heat and sweeten with honey.
Serve hot.
