What is in our Turmeric tea?

Our naturopath has carefully selected this blend of organic herbs, to reduce inflammation throughout the body. Herbs including turmeric, black pepper and cinnamon, have traditionally been used synergistically to help reduce inflammation, improve circulation and offer powerful antioxidant properties.

Our ingredients for this blend are sourced from Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and South Africa –
and hand packed with care by us, in Victoria, Australia.

 

 

What are the health benefits of drinking Turmeric Tea?

The health benefits of Turmeric are largely attributed to its bioactive component; Curcumin, which offers therapeutic benefits that work to reduce inflammation throughout different systems in the body.

Curcumin offers support for many digestive conditions including IBS, and ulcerative colitis, via its anti-inflammatory effects, and its ability to secrete enzymes, which promote healthy digestion.

Curcumin’s action is attributed to its ability to modulate numerous signalling molecules such as pro-inflammatory cytokines, and C-reactive protein, to help control the body’s inflammatory response.

To date, research has focussed largely on the efficacy of Turmeric as a treatment for existing conditions, including psoriasis, arthritis, asthma, and many digestive conditions. However, it also holds huge potential when taken daily as a preventative, rather than a cure. We believe there is enormous potential for Turmeric to work well as a preventative when taken regularly, to reduce the severity of each disease, or potentially reduce the chance of a disease occurring at all.

How do you brew Turmeric tea?

Loose leaf

Place a heaped teaspoon (2 grams) of tea per cup (250ml) into a teapot or infuser. Add filtered water at 75ºc–85ºc and allow to infuse for 3–4 minutes. Strain the tea and serve.

Pyramid tea bags

Place 1 pyramid into a cup (250ml) and add boiling, filtered water at 75ºc–85ºc. Allow to infuse for 3–4 minutes, and then remove the bag and serve.

 

Does Turmeric tea contain caffeine?

Our Turmeric tea blend is caffeine free, so you can enjoy it at any time throughout the day.

What is our packaging made from?

The clear pouch that holds our Turmeric tea is not made from plastic. It is made from a renewable plant-based cellophane, which can also easily be home composted and will break down in a few short months if composted correctly.

The cardboard is made from post-consumer recycled board, is printed with vegetable-based inks and can also be home composted after use where it will break down in a few short months if composted correctly.

Our pyramid tea bags are also not made from plastic. They are made from a biodegradable, non-GMO, plant-based material called Soilon, which meets all compostability standards in Japan, North America and Europe. However it is important to note, they will definitely take longer than other compost items to decompose. The material manufacturers recommend commercial composting as a quicker alternative to address this longer time of breakdown.

If you are looking for the most environmentally friendly option, we will always recommend drinking loose leaf tea.
