Turmeric Chai from The Whistling Kettle. . . . .

The experience I had recently with Turmeric Chai from The Whistling Kettle is something I would like to share with you today!

‘ This isn’t your average chai! Why? Because it goes above and beyond with the addition of BOTH turmeric and Tulsi (holy basil). A little bit of each of those ingredients goes a long way! You can see and taste the specks of turmeric and the tulsi is just as wonderful! The dynamic duo surely makes this blend of flavors what it is. And it IS wonderful!

This is a blend of black tea, ginger, and cinnamon, Tulsi (known as Holy Basil), and turmeric.

Tulsi has been used for thousands of years for a variety of purposes – from use in Hindu worship and the healing practices of Ayurveda, to flavoring in Thai cuisine and even as an all-natural insect repellent! Perhaps I should look into some tulsi for my kitchen because the fruit flies are crazy this year!

Turmeric is an integral spice in curry and I adore it! It has been found to contain anti-inflammatory compounds and can increase your body’s antioxidant capacity. Curcumin, the compound that’s responsible for the bright yellow hue, is particularly effective in preventing heart attacks, delaying diabetes, and even fighting cancer.

Black pepper, found in this tea, is often used to boost the amount of curcumin (an active compound in turmeric) that is able to be absorbed into the blood.

Of course we aren’t making any claims here because we aren’t doctors – we are just tea loving beings, folks!

If any or all of this intrigues you THIS is a flavor chai you will WANT to try!
