A hot cup of tea and a bowl full of pakoras are what crave during the rainy season. Let's agree! Nothing can give you the feeling of absolute bliss than these two items. Having a cup of caffeinated drink may help you feel rejuvenating especially during monsoon but what about making it healthy? What if your tea becomes tastier and healthier at the same time in order to keep monsoon woes at bay? Sounds good? If yes then head to your kitchen cabinets. Pick spices or herbs that are known to boost metabolism and immunity naturally. Add them to your tea and enjoy a variety of benefits without making big efforts.


Turmeric has an array of benefits to offer. It is filled with strong antioxidants that can not only keep your immunity optimum but also heal wounds, reduce inflammation, and pain. Turmeric is used in Ayurvedic medicine as an active ingredient as it has anti-bacterial and anti-infective properties. This holy grail can build your resistance to fight against common ailments. 


Digestive issues like diarrhea, infection, upset stomach, indigestion etc. become prevalent, especially during the rainy season. This happens due to the rise in water-borne diseases. A dash of cinnamon can become your arsenal against these illnesses, says Ayurveda. Cinnamon is also great for your cardiovascular health as it prevents clogging up of arteries and reduces your likelihood of experiencing a heart attack or stroke. 

Black Pepper

This kitchen ingredient not only adds a fiery taste to several delicacies but also offers a range of health benefits. From boosting immunity to improving metabolism and keeping digestive issues at bay, black pepper can do a lot than we think. Adding it to your daily cup of tea can improve doshas like Kapha and also help in the free flow of oxygen to the brain.
