It’s December. Which means winter is here.
Hearing anything about winter immediately reminds me of Game of Thrones. It also reminds me of something equally spectacular – Chai!
. A cup of Adrak ki chai (Ginger tea) is a must for cold winters! It should be a staple. One could say that Ginger tea in India during winters is what pumpkin spiced lattes are to the west during fall.
Apart from being comforting and delicious, this chai possesses an abundance of health benefits. So here are a few more reasons for you to start sipping on this tea:
No more rumble in the tummy
Winter gets us all into a full on hibernation mode. We barely get any exercise and yet we continue to stock up on fat by eating generously all kinds of comfort foods. This gives our foodie soul some momentary pleasure, but it leaves an evident impact on our stomach.
Not to worry! Drinking Ginger tea enhances your digestion. It helps to absorb our food better, leaving us with a fresh appetite.
The tea will swell. Your muscles won’t
It’s hard to get out of bed on cold mornings, which is a great excuse to skip working out. Our limbs go stiff when we don’t use them enough.
Grease your joints and muscles with some Ginger. It has anti-inflammatory properties that will help treat tiredness and swelling of your muscles and joints. It acts like physiotherapy.
Blood flow won’t be low
Blood is like gossip. It goes stale if it’s not circulated enough.
All jokes apart, it is essential to keep your blood circulation at a good rate in order to keep your organs well oxidized. Both ginger and tea leaves help in maintaining a good blood circulation. Also, they give a clean and clear skin.
Ease the cramps
This one is for the ladies. It’s hard to stay on the move when your cramps seem out to kill you. But this might help:
Ginger tea helps to soothe the period cramps. Drinking a hot cup of this tea eases the muscles and gives overall relief to your body.
Another way to use tea is to soak a towel in hot ginger tea and wrap it around your abdomen. This also helps soothe the pain.
Don’t stress it
Don’t we all wish we could just take the entire month of December off from college/work and get back with a “New Year new me” excuse?
Our bosses aren’t that generous. But chai is. Drink a cup to relieve yourself of that long day’s stress.
It goes rough on your cough
When the weather gets cold, so do our bodies. Every other person seems to be catching cough or cold. It is quite common, you see. (Yes. That was pun intended)
Don’t let the winter bring you down! Instead, grab your tea and just watch as this miracle work – Ginger Tea makes its way through you, clearing your throat and your airway.
I guess it’s safe to say that whether it’s taste, comfort or health benefits, adrak ki chai has checked all the boxes. So start and end your day by saying hi to this chai and grab the best cup of it at the nearest outlet of Tpot café! or order online.
