If you have been following Mira Kapoor on Instagram, you may have figured by now that the 26-year-old loves her food and knows it rather well too. Mira is a stellar cook, and often shares pictures of her home-cooked dishes on Instagram, like the other time when she prepared a delicious Italian supper for her family. Mira has also been very vocal about eating clean, local and seasonal food. She often uses herbs, fruits and vegetables growing in her backyard in some of her recipes. Recently she decided to give a shout out to lopchu, a variant of tea that is grown in Darjeeling. It is a kind of a black tea that comes in many flavours nowadays. “Nothing like a great cuppa of lopchu”, she wrote in the caption of the Instagram story, she had posted on Tuesday afternoon.
Mira prepared her lopchu tea without milk. The hot brew is said to be very beneficial for health. The tea leaves are loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that help rev up immunity. The tea, if consumed in right amount, may also lead to good digestion and detox. If taken without sugar, it could serve as a nice low-cal drink that you could add to your diet.
