A day in most of our lives doesn't begin without having a refreshing cup of nice and hot tea. However, in some North Indian states, tea leaves are added in curries to enhance the flavour and aroma of the dishes.
It is the tea that gives the dark colour to the chickpea masala curry, which makes the dish look amazingly appetizing. A tea bag too would be added while soaking the chickpeas, the previous night. The refreshing aroma and the dark colour of the tea give a distinct flavour to the curry. Similarly, tea is added in some puddings and sweet treats as well. The iced tea is a popular drink in Thailand. The delicious cocktail made with chilled black tea is a favourite among the tourists who throng Thailand.
The moringa leaves tea is a speciality of the Bahamas. Moringa leaves are dried in the shade and are finely powdered. This moringa leaf powder is added into the boiling water and is closed using a lid. The leaves would infuse the tea with its unique flavour and colour, within just five minutes. It is an excellent remedy to prevent diabetes and eases stomach aches as well. Besides, regularly consuming the moringa leaves tea would make your skin glow.
Ginger tea is a beverage that is commonly made in our households. Lemon juice, pineapple juice, fresh turmeric and black pepper too could be added while making tea. Tea made by infusing lemon grass has amazing medicinal properties. Refreshing tea can be brewed by infusing mango leaves and guava leaves that are readily available in our backyards. The spicy tea made by adding black pepper, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom creates a riot of flavours on our palette and is extremely relaxing as well.
