Fill pot with cold water and put on high to boil.
This is the fun part, mix your cinnamon, staranise, cardamon, clove and black pepper in equal or unequal parts to suit your taste. Try few different ratios.
Add your cedar and roughly 10-15g of your spice mix and berries to the pot.
Once boil starts reduce to a simmer.
Once cedar goes dark green and just starts to dull is best to remove from heat and remove from the pot.
Laddle to your cup and enjoy, I prefer to sweeten mine just a little with smokey maple syrup.
