When brewing a fresh cup of tea, use loose leaves with a tea infuser rather than a tea bag if possible. The same study noted that when steeping tea, 5 minutes is long enough to extract 80–90% of its antioxidant content.
To brew the best cup of tea, use fresh ingredients and be careful about the quality, It’s rainy days, ingredients must be checked, ingredients quality must not be neglected or spoiled ones. Also, be aware that compounds in some teas may interact with your medications. So, be aware of it like, Cinnamon is one of the most important flavoring agents in food and drinks. Research reveals that coumarin is present, in substantial amounts in cinnamon-flavored foods. Coumarin is very toxic to the liver and causes severe damage to this organ. Before consuming think which tea suitable for you.
Note: Excess of anything is not good for the health. These teas for the primary medication but you must consult with your doctor, if you are facing any kind of problem. Don’t be your own doctor.
