Tea and My comfort zone

Tea or Camillia sinensis is considered to be a refreshing drink.
The degree of processing the leaves determines the quality of tea.
Green tea is less processed. Black and red tea is partially crushed; dried and fermented .The length of fermentation determines the color on leaves will be black or red.
Tea has cancer fighting properties, as it has polyphenols which acts as antioxidants.

While I start my day with a cup of tea in early morning, I feel rejuvenated and ready to take on my life.
Ginger tea is another tea with medicinal value which we like to drink .This tea gives an instant relief to cold and cough. Sprinkle some black pepper powder when ready to drink, soothes the throat and clears the mucous also.
Ginger tea
Serves for 1 people
1 tsp of tea (while we use mixed, some green leaves and black)
½ tsp of ginger paste (use fresh ginger instead of processed)
¼ cup of hot milk
¾ cup of water
½ tsp of sugar
Boil the milk first, keep aside, meanwhile in a separate vessel heat up ginger paste and water, add sugar and tea, stop the flame take out in another vessel and cover it.
Now Filter the tea and add hot milk to it .

Enjoy with reading your Favorite Book.

This is my comfort zone where I relax and enjoy my time with a cup of tea.
