Aavarampoo Tea Recipe | Senna auriculata | ஆவாரை டீ is a healthy tea which cures many diseases. “Avarai poothirukka Saavarai Kandadhundo?” is a Tamil proverb which explains the benefits of aavarampoo. It blooms in the month of November, December and January and these flowers will be golden yellow in colour with many medicinal benefits for the treatment of various disorders in human being such as, diabetes, liver toxicity, fungal infection, microbial infection, inflammation, pyrexia and to relieve pain.
Botanical name:- Senna ariculata
We usually collect the flowers, dry them in shade without any change in golden yellow colour of the petals and store it in containers. You can use these flowers throughout the year, until the petals retain its yellow colour. While buying dry aavarampoo from stores be careful in checking the colour of the flowers. It has its medicinal value until it retains its yellow colour. Once it looses its colour it looses its properties.
This aavarampoo can also be used fresh if you get it from your garden to prepare this tea. If you do not get fresh flowers you can use dry flowers too which has the same medicinal benefits. More over we do not get the flowers throughout the year and so it is better to collect and store for one year during the season itself.
