Turmeric Ginger Tea


A time-trusted immune system tonic – perfect for winter months!

As we face “typical” winter viruses plus the threats posed by Covid-19, this time-proven tea is an affordable way to support wellness. Both ginger and turmeric are root/rhizome portions of the plant, and have been used for centuries both as delicious recipe ingredients and health tonics.

Turmeric is a bright yellow-orange root. Our family has been grinding fresh, potent turmeric into powder that’s at the heart of our curries for generations. In fact, our family legacy includes inventing a proprietary milling process for fresh, pure organic turmeric. Indianlife Ground Turmeric is one of our “Pandemic Pantry Picks”, an effortless, effective “go-to” for recipes including this warming, comforting and beneficial tea.

Today turmeric is being studied for a beneficial compound it contains, curcumin. Curcumin gives curries their vibrant yellow color. Curcumin is now recognized for anti-inflammatory properties and beneficial compounds that show promise in combatting diseases including alzheimers, arthritis and some cancers.

Ginger has been used since time immemorial to combat infections, relieve nausea and aid digestion. It also has been shown to have antiviral activity. Ginger gets its heat from a compound called gingerol; this is one of the compounds that are believed to help inhibit viral replication and that may help protect host cells.

This simple tea is delicious enough to become a year-round favorite!
