  2. Bring the kadha to a boil. Simmer for 5 minutes on medium flame.
  3. Add green tea and simmer for 5-8 minutes or till the kadha reduces to 600 ml. Turn off the flame. Strain kadha and drink hot.

Tip: If you want to make the kadha sweet, then add jaggery while simmering. If you have a cold, sore throat, or cough, take the kadha three times a day, do not add any sweet, and increase the quantity of black pepper to 10. Take a sip, tighten your lips and exhale through your nose. This will help in relieving nasal congestion.
