The rainy monsoon season is all about hot tea, relaxing on the balcony, and watching the rain. But the temperature comes with it its fair share of colds, coughs, and sneezes. How can avoid falling sick? Well, herbs can come to your rescue!
Tea is one of our favourite beverages, adding the power of herbs can do wonders. To boost wellness throughout the rainy season, these wonder plants are simple to combine with our beloved cup of tea. Ekta Jain, CMO, Octavius Tea, lists a few herbs and plants that add taste to tea and also look after your body:
Lemongrass: For almost every tea lover, the drink is incomplete without adding this citrusy-flavoured plant, which has numerous health benefits. Lemongrass has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant properties. It aids digestion, helps relieve stress and pain, prevents infection, and boosts oral health. Its aroma is an instant mood-lifter that can help keep anxiety at bay.
Turmeric: When it starts to rain, turmeric, which contains the strength of curcumin, desmethoxycurcumin, and bis-desmethoxycurcumin, can fortify the inner core of our bodies. Due of the herb's antibacterial characteristics, it can treat numerous infections that arise during the monsoon season. Turmeric tea has additional advantages for our weight loss programme.
Tulsi: In the realm of therapeutic herbs, Tulsi is a legendary rockstar. One cup of Tulsi blended tea will alleviate chest congestion, unclog our noses, and put an end to the illness. Vitamin A, D, iron, fibre, and other components found in Tulsi help destroy bacteria and improve immunity. Additionally, %ulsi is a fantastic herb for maintaining good oral and dental health.

This herb, also referred to as white cheesewood, has potent antimalarial properties. Its antipyretic effects of it can lower a fever. Additionally, it can strengthen the body's overall resistance to malaria. Last but not least, it can aid in the relief of numerous skin issues as well as gastrointestinal pain.
Ginger: While eating on the street during the rain may be highly attractive, the allure comes with a terrible case of stomach pain. Because of this, adding ginger to our tea is a fantastic idea! Ginger is a herb that enhances digestion and metabolism, which helps our gut function. It is also a great beverage for controlling nausea brought on by motion sickness or morning sickness.
Hibiscus: Hibiscus is a crucial ingredient to include in tea, especially when it rains, as it is rich in beta-carotene, vitamin C, and anthocyanin. The herb keeps our internal immune system in equilibrium, thwarting the emergence of an unwelcome illness or infection. Additionally, it contains a lot of antioxidants and antibacterial effects.
