Like any good marriage, the pairing of ginger and turmeric offers all the heat, spice and nourishment one could ask for. (If your relationship lacks any of the above, please note we said good marriage!)
According to Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India, Turmeric (Curcuma longa) offers a plethora of benefits for the body. Practitioners believe the spice can promote digestion, support the brain and nervous system, and keep body cells functioning at their best, thanks to an abundance of natural antioxidants. On the other hand, Ginger (Zingiber officinale), often colloquially described as an Ayurvedic medicine chest, is said to help ease joint pain, help the body absorb nutrients and eliminate bodily waste. Taken together, ginger and turmeric offer a potent pick-me-up that’s surprises the tongue and warms the body from head to toe.
To create our drinkable version of this Ayurvedic powerhouse, we’ve combined both with a melange of green and black teas, selected for their polyphenol punch, then added bael nut, from a sacred Hindu tree (Agele marmelos) and cornflower petals to round out the blend. Sip, and be well.
