The monsoon season is here in full swing. While the showers bring along with them the much-needed respite from the scorching heat - it is also the time when you're prone to several infections. The high humidity levels in the air enable microorganisms to thrive, increasing our risk of being exposed to harmful bacteria and viruses. This is why it is important to build a strong immunity during this time of the year. And one of the best ways to do this is to include healthy food and beverages in our diet. While there are plenty of nutritious options to choose from - tea is one such beverage that most Indians cannot do without. And if you add a bunch of herbs and spices to your tea - it can do wonders for your health.
