Turmeric is a member of the ginger family and, like ginger, it's the root of the turmeric plant which is dried and ground to create the vibrant orange spice that has become so popular. India produces and consumes 80% of the world's turmeric. It is used not only in their cooking, but for centuries Ayurvedic medicine has recognized its anti-inflammatory properties as well.
In the West, turmeric was first introduced as a dye, but eventually made its way onto the spice shelf and even more recently has come to the attention of the medical community. Many healthcare providers now recommend turmeric to support those with inflammatory conditions such as arthritis. This wonderfully mild spice also offers antioxidant benefits and is currently being researched for use in the treatment of certain forms of cancer.
A delicious way to get the many benefits of this subtle, savory spice is to enjoy it in tea. We hand blend our Turmeric Mango Organic Green Tea to deliver all the healthy goodness of turmeric and green tea with the tropical flavors of mango, pineapple and yuzu, creating a naturally sweet and tangy brew.
