The use of turmeric as a weight loss and health aid over the past few years seems on the rise. If you look around any healthfood store, you’ll find turmeric in many forms but most notably tea. Octavia Tea offers two teas blended with turmeric; Turmeric Plum Berry and Turmeric Ginger.
Octavia’s Turmeric Plum Berry is a naturally caffeine-free herbal tea with a balancing, restorative energy of golden turmeric. This tea is US certified organic and blended with honey bush, apple, turmeric, quince, strawberries, plum & lychee flavors, and lemon peel. A delightfully delicious berry blend.
In each cup of Octavia’s Turmeric Ginger tea look for zesty ginger and bright citrus flavors all enhanced by the addition of golden turmeric. The intermingling of flavors is an ancient herbal recipe for longevity, stamina and balance. This tea is US certified organic and blended with all organic ingredients: ginger, turmeric, licorice root, lemongrass, orange peel, lemon peel, yuzu, mikan, and lemon & tangerine essential oils. A refreshingly tasty tea.
The health benefits of turmeric include an improved ability to digest fats, reducing gas and bloating, decreased congestion, and improved skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne. Turmeric has been used as a powerful anti-inflammatory in Chinese and Indian medicine for centuries.
The spice we refer to as Turmeric is actually the dried and ground rhizome of a plant in the same family as ginger. It is used and prized for its color and earthy flavor in culinary applications world wide. Modern medicine is beginning to recognizes its health benefits and turmeric has been widely used in natural and folk medicine for centuries.
Both Turmeric Plum Berry and Turmeric Ginger are a delicious healthy low calorie and no caffeine drinks. Most of the positive health benefits are the results of powerful antioxidants in the blends.
