If your mom is angry at you, just make her some tea. Her wrath might just go away. Want to share a burning issue with a friend? Invite them over for tea and cookies and pour your heart out. They’ll listen to you till the flask is finished. You need to finish that book you’ve been putting off for over the last three months and if you just want a reason to snuggle with a blanket and the book, then tea is your answer.
Ditch your everyday tea for a something with a bit of zing; masala chai. Known to only sooth but also beat common flu (at least locally), it adds the kick you need when enjoying the beverage. Use ginger syrup as a sweetener to your list of ingredients and you’ll be good to go. Be warned, masala chai might end up being your new go-to beverage.
