Any suggestions for some Paleo-friendly hot drinks?

I'm getting bored with drinking herbal tea every day and I'm trying to cut back on my coffee/caffeine intake (as well as the milk) so I'm on the look out for any suggestions for other types of hot drinks. They need to be Paleo, i.e. nutritious and low toxicity, and most of all tasty. What do you drink that's not the usual suspects?

UPDATE:

Just tried the turmeric tea suggestion from Marty -- very nice! Next time I'll skip the honey because it's sweet enough already, and I'll strain out the ginger as crunchy lumps just don't seem right in a smooth drink. I'm going to try seeing if I can get the coconut milk to froth too.

I hope you'll like it! Btw I realised I forgot to specify that coriander refers to coriander seeds. I've edited the list accordingly :)

Good idea on the bone broth, had been thinking of b/broth like a meal rather than a drink. I've started using b/b with white rice, more a type of soup than drink but it's tastier and I need the carbs.

Oh, not at all. I love warm water. Maybe it's just a psychological factor, but I do feel it's so much easier to gulp a mug down as compared to room-temperature :)

Just got some nettle tea, not too bad was expecting it to be a bit "grassy", makes a change from the usual herbal teas.

This is really good. Even better if you add a drop of honey and spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cayenne.

This may be very stupid, but doesn't salt water make you go crazy?

Me, too. That's what I'm replacing my coffee with. I'm adding a pinch of celtic sea salt.

Try some Yerba Mate. Lower caffeine than coffee, great flavor, and smooth, long-lasting buzz. Been drinking this stuff for years and I love it. Can be bought from most organic grocers now, or online from such companies as Guayaki.

I know you say you are tired of the herbal teas, but there are a ton of herbal teas out there. Different ratios of the herbs give you different flavor profiles. And there are plenty of possible health benefits, depending on which herbs you brew. Making them as lattes is also great. You can also cold brew them and completely change the flavors.

I love Chai. It's soothing on a cold and rainy day especially.

I came up with one rather accidentally.

There are various ways to come up with Chais, but here goes:

My accidental chai masala, 1/2 teaspoon of each:

  • black pepper
  • rosemary
  • fennel seeds
  • coriander seeds

Yields: 1 mug.

Grind the spices up, put them in a tea bag, and steep them up with another bag of tea of choice.

I've tried with Assam and Rooibos tea; they both work well with the spices.

You can add:

  • star anise
  • lemongrass
  • cardamoms
  • cinnamon
  • ginger
  • cloves

I heat up some almond milk and add a piece or two of dark chocolate to it, its almost like hot chocolate, only better. Or if you're not opposed to using stevia, heated almond milk with a tiny it of peppermint stevia is delicious.

When I want something hot I just heat up plain water and sip on that. But then again I'm crazy, so...

I am drinking my usual nettles tea with lemon and honey. I am actually putting lemon and honey into every tea and herb tea lately.

How about some good old Bone Broth? Or any broth for that matter.

I also love warmed home made Nut Milk, spiced with cinnamon + nutmeg.

Mark's Daily Apple has this ridiculous turmeric tea

http://www.marksdailyapple.com/creamy-turmeric-tea/

It's made with coconut milk, so it's more of a substitute for hot coco than tea.

Almond milk lattes (can do decaf), almond milk tea lattes and green tea matcha lattes (with real powder, not sugared up concentrate). I like to season everything with cinnamon. I also like to do my version of hot cocoa--almond milk, raw cacao and coconut sugar. I also like to dump a splash of almond milk into my black tea with a squirt of raw local honey.

I've been meaning to buy one of those handheld milk frothers from Ikea (I think they're $1.99) to make lattes with.

hot milk (hemp, coconut, flax, or almond of your choice) + raw cacao = hot chocolate
