When we think about turmeric we generally tend to think about adding a teaspoon of spice to a delicious curry for a flavour boost, or more often in recent years, spicing up our morning latte with a tasty turmeric twist.
It must be said however, that turmeric is widely considered a super spice with the power to positively impact many aspects of our lives. The truth is, turmeric could benefit us all in one way or another and we can explain how…
Turmeric is the main spice in curry, a well-known Indian dish. The fine yellow powder derives from the ground roots of the Curcuma longa plant. Curcuma longa's presence in Southeast Asia led to the widespread use of turmeric.
Our ancestors were ahead of the curve when they studied the medicinal uses of turmeric.
In parts of India, turmeric has been used for centuries in daily life. It is used for cosmetics, medicine, and is considered extremely auspicious for Hindu rituals. There's a role for turmeric in every ritual as it signifies purity, fertility and good health.
In recent year turmeric is being used more and more frequently in food, beverages and supplements to aid our healthy lifestyles.
Many say that adding turmeric to our daily lives will benefit us in ways we could only imagine!
From helping us to achieve healthy weight loss goals to helping ease symptoms of joint pain or arthritis, the addition of turmeric to our daily lives could also improve our brain function and help us detox our systems with its powerful antioxidant properties.
It is even rumoured that turmeric can help in the prevention of diseases such as cancer and heart disease, reduce the symptoms of allergies and fight inflammation… Now that really is a SUPER SPICE if you ask us!
With this in mind we created our delicious warming blend of Organic China green tea with Turmeric, Ginger and Matcha. Not only does this organic tea pack a super turmeric punch, it is also boosted with our Qi Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder for extra antioxidant properties.
All our teas are packed in our own facility at the tea gardens straight after picking to preserve all the natural goodness of the fresh leaf.
