Tea with citrus fruit, papaya and clove, prepared by yourself, is a pleasant ending of the day when we are greeted by gloomy autumn or winter weather. Properly prepared tea not only warms us up, but also improves immunity through the high content of vitamin C in oranges, lemon and lime. By the way, it will improve the mood and remind you of the flavours of summer.
Black tea has a high concentration of flavonoids – compounds that delay the aging process. They are able to capture free oxygen radicals and neutralize their effects.
