If you feel cold and throat pain, boil some tulsi patha (leaf) with black tea and use hot. Those who are strong enough to take more dose, take small quantities of black pepper powder geera, ginger powder, and tulsi. Add sugar a little more to reduce the black pepper taste. Boil all items in 2-3 glasses of water, reduce it to two-third and drink in 3-4 times. You can increase or decrease the quantity of items, especially black pepper. Its enough for 1 days use.
