Ayurvedic tea weight loss remedy

When I worked as a herbalist, at an exclusive spa resort in Malaysia, one that was frequented by royalty and was a favourite haunt for the opera singer Pavarotti, I made friends with a fellow practitioner Dr Kumar. He was an authentic Ayurvedic doctor from India who came from a long line of doctors with family knowledge passed down.
One day when a few of us ladies were complaining about our expanding waistlines with all the great food on offer at the resort, Dr Kumar offered a simple piece of advice. Simply drink black tea, with a squeeze of lemon juice each morning. I recommend Tea Blender’s Breakfast for this purpose.
