Healthy, because

Even smarter

The many spices in the self-prepared ayurvedic tea promote digestion, are antispasmodic, soothe the stomach, help against flatulence and some have an antibacterial effect. The tea is therefore a perfect drink after the consumption of hard to digest food.

If the homemade Ayurvedic tea is too spicy for you, you can reduce the pungency with milk.
