It was tasty. It certainly warmed me up (and cleared my sinuses)!
How much cayenne do you use? Help! I've about killed myself with this one.

I'm going to let snip answer that. I used about 1-1/2 tsp cayenne powder and the juice of 1/2 lemon. Might have used too much cayenne...

Seems like I'm heating DC up a bit!
Start with 1/4 tsp and work your way up to a tsp. I took me about 1 week to get used to it and enjoy it.

Now you tell me! I do like spicy, so I might back it off to 1/2 of what I put in today and see how that goes. Do you drink it more than once a day?

PF and CW, sorry for burning you both. Didn't realize you would use such a big dose to begin with. :(
I made the same mistake, almost didn't try again but I'm glad I did!

Once a day is enough but if you like the taste you can drink a bit more. I drink 2-3 cups on cold days just to warm me up but it's not necessary

I got the capsules, thinking I wouldn't burn my mouth, one healthy burp made me realize I could burn all the way back up! I'll start with 1/8th tsp...not tolerating spicy hot like I used to.

Start with what you can handle, a little bit is better than nothing
I do feel good when I drink it, don't get as many headaches anymore either.

I fixed myself some curried tuna for lunch today and added some cayenne.

There's your answer... what you can't drink in the tea you can make up for in food
I love adding a bit of cayenne to my homemade lemonade too. Very nice in summer and it has less bite when cold!
I had some on my avocado today.
