I love to sip on warm beverages throughout the day. My morning starts with a large cup of Tulsi green tea, and then during the day, I experiment with different teas and tisanes.

My mom asked me to try this jeera water sometime back. It was quite a comforting drink, and I could feel my stomach dance happily.
