A TURMERIC TREAT WITH GINGER GOODNESS
So… it is mid-January, Christmas is well and truly behind us, your New years resolutions are starting to wane and you can feel a cold coming on....
Well fear not, we have the answer for you, our lovely organic turmeric and ginger tea is not just a beautiful fragrant steeper, but it is also packed with health enriching ingredients.
Ginger and turmeric both belong to the Zingiberaceae botanical family, and have long been valued for their medicinal properties, particularly in Eastern cultures being used in Ayurvedic medicine.
Turmeric has a rich golden hue with a warm peppery flavour. It has a range of health benefits due to curcumin, the yellow pigment in this amazing root.
Turmeric is often credited with the following benefits:
Protects the heart in various ways.
Helpful for arthritis.
May be helpful for fighting diabetes and cancer
Ginger also contains powerful anti-inflammatory compounds, gingerols. These substances are believed to explain why so many people with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis experience reductions in their pain levels and improvements in their mobility when they consume ginger regularly. It also has had a long tradition of effectively alleviating everything from stomach discomfort to reducing the symptoms of morning sickness.
When you combine these magnificent ingredients into our wonderful tea, you have a supercharged drink that is perfect for this time of the year (well all year round in fact). Having only introduced our organic turmeric and ginger tea this January, it has become an instant hit with our customers. So don’t let your January sniffles, aches or pains take hold, come and see us at our Tea Bar and try a cup of this amazing tea, or if you are in a hurry buy a bag, take it home and enjoy.
