Thank you for sharing Rajan

Very interesting information. It can boost your immunity.

I normally see people preparing tea by adding Ginger, Tulasi leaves, cloves, and cardamom and even lemon juice, for health.

BTW, I use the natural tea (Brooke Bond Natural) which I like very much as it contains healthy ingredients.

Mary Wickison from Brazil on March 30, 2020:

I can get most of these ingredients so will try this. What kind of tea do you use this in? A black tea?

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on March 30, 2020:

Hey Rajah, this tea masala story inspires me. It has give me a natural idea of handling various immunity boosting ingredients. This morning, and also every morning, I go for my glass of warm water. 40 minutes later, black tea with ginger, garlic, lemon, and any immunity boosters will follow with a balanced grain meal. It boost my health and energy. These herbs you mention can be got in an Indian. Mall in my area. Thanks for sharing.
