Turmeric Gold from Pukka. . . .

I love pukka teas.

Every single flavor I’ve tried has been amazing.

I also love turmeric and I try to incorporate it into my diet everyday. Turmeric tea is a great way to do that!This tea has turmeric root,green tea, licorice root,cardamom, lemon and verbana leaf. I taste a lot of lemon which is a great thing in my opinion! It helps cut the sharpness of the turmeric. I don’t really taste the licorice or cardamom, but I’m sure they’re working with the lemon to make this a really bright and delicious tea.

I’ve talked to several people who want to add turmeric tea to their diets but find the taste a little to sharp. This is the tea I will tell them to try from now on. It tastes more like a lovely lemon ginger tea. It is yellow so be careful when you pour it.

Turmeric’s color is pretty intense!

Turmeric has many, many health benefits and this tea is such a simple and delicious way to get some in your system. I am having mine warm because well fall, but I plan on trying it iced as well. I would imagine the lemon makes this a really refreshing iced drink as well. It does have green tea so there is a small amount of caffeine.

This probably wouldn’t be the best dessert tea anyway. But it is a wonderful way to start the day, and would probably be a great afternoon pick me up as well!

Turmeric Ginger from Rishi. . . .

Ginger tea is one of my favorite things to drink, and I’m always trying to find ways to get turmeric in my diet so this tea is right up my alley!

This tea has ginger and turmeric, of course but it also has licorice root, lemongrass which is another favorite of mine, and also orange and lemon peel and orange and lemon oil. The taste of the ginger and citrus is there, but it definitely takes a back seat to the turmeric.

Turmeric can be very overpowering if too much is used as I’ve learned when I experiment with making golden milk with turmeric and coconut milk. But Rishi Tea knows what they’re doing. The turmeric is there, but it’s the perfect amount. When you take a sip you get the zest of turmeric, with a little hint of ginger and citrus.

This is a caffeine free tea, but I noticed I felt very energized and zippy after drinking this. This is also a very warming tea, so I will be adding this to the winter tea rotation. It would be great to have before or after being out in the cold. I enjoyed this tea warm, but I plan on trying it iced next. It seems like one of those teas that are great hot or iced.

Description

The awesome, centering energy of golden turmeric root is enhanced by strengthening licorice root and zesty ginger in this Ayurveda inspired blend. Fragrant lemongrass and citrus peels create a lemon drop candy sweetness that balances the pungency of the roots. The combination of turmeric, ginger, lemon and honey is an ancient herbal recipe for longevity, stamina and balance.

Turmeric & Spice Black Tea from Steeped Tea. . . .

Turmeric. It’s starting to become a game here at SororiTea Sisters. If we see a Turmeric Tea – we have to get our hands on it – and try it! At least a few of the SororiTea Sisters are a bit more than obsesses with Turmeric lately and if you are, too, then you might get a kick out of this tea from Steeped Tea. Turmeric & Spice Black Tea from Steeped Tea, that is.

With a name like Turmeric & Spice Black Tea – of course you could assume it would have black tea and turmeric and you would be right. Other ingredients include orange peel, ginger bits, pink peppercorns, coriander, cardamom, chili loops, and marigold blossoms. I will say that the ginger bits do have a gentle dusting of sugar on them.

This is a very spicy flavored black tea. If you are into Chai Tea you will most likely enjoy this tea! The peppercorns are plentiful but so are the other spices. The spice is a combo of peppery-spice and herbal-spice. The addition of the orange peel is more of a back-up singer to the spices but I can’t imagine this flavored black tea with out that bit of citrus! It really takes it to the next level for me! It doesn’t have as much turmeric as other teas I have tried but it is sprinkled in there nicely among the other loose leaf ingredients.

1 teaspoon at 2 or 3 minutes is all you need here, folks! If you are ready for an eye-opening turmeric tea experience – try Turmeric & Spice from Steeped Tea! It’s a goodie!
