I personally Love Cardamom tea. Cardamom (elaichi) is the "queen of spices", it is one of the most valued spices in the world. Cardamom has a strong, unique taste, with an intensely aromatic fragrance.
It has following important health benefits.
- Cardamom is used chiefly in medicines to relieve flatulence and for strengthening digestion activities.
- Ground cardamom seed mixed with ginger (adrak), cloves (laung) and coriander (dhania), is an effective remedy for indigestion.
- A tea made from cardamom is valuable in headache caused by indigestion.
- This can also be used as a remedy in the treatment of depression.
- Green cardamom is broadly used to treat infections in teeth and gums,
- It can be used to prevent and treat throat troubles, and congestion of the lungs.
- Daily gargling with an infusion of cardamom and cinnamon (dalchini) cures pharyngitis, sore-throat and also protects one from flu.
