You can use the allspice powder as a spice. Because it has such a unique and multi-dimensional flavor profile, it pairs well with both sweet and savory dishes. You can drop a few allspice powder into your mulled wine or tea while brewing to add a deep, warm flavor to it. A pinch of ground spice sprinkled into curries, soups or stews gives them a more rounded flavor. To make an infusion, place 1-2 teaspoons of allspice powder in a tea infuser or teapot or mug for each cup of tea you intend to brew. Cover with boiling water. Place on the lid (or cover your cup with a saucer). Allow the mixture to steep for 10 'to 15' minutes or overnight. Then strain the tea and serve. Drink 1-3 cups of tea a day. You can substitute up to 1/2 teaspoon of allspice powder in recipes that call for the whole allspice berry (equalling about 6 allspice berries), or an equivalent mixture of the cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Allspice seems to be safe for most people when used properly. Hypersensitive individuals could experience an allergic reaction to allspice. In any case you should consult with your healthcare doctor before using allspice especially if you’re taking other medications or having health problems.
