Organic Functional Black Tea – Turmeric Ginger Peach 90H
Thousands of years before modern science defined the link between the mind and body, practitioners of Ayurveda, India's system of traditional medicine, were already on the job. Known as the science, or knowledge of life, (Ayur means life, while Veda means knowledge), the practice acknowledges that there is no better way to heal the body than through the mind. As such, being free from illness depends on finding balance within the body. Naturally, the best way to go about finding balance within the body, according to the practice, was through the foods put into it.
As such, Ayurvedic practice involved preparing foods with specific health benefits. (And now we come to the basis of this sumptuous blended tea.) Among the most powerful of these foods were turmeric and ginger. Both considered be something of a natural medicine chest, each act as powerful detoxifiers. Both were also prized for their ability to promote digestion and boost the immune system. Thankfully, both are also quite delicious.
Building on Ayurvedic tradition, and in an effort to help you find balance within your own body, we've added both turmeric and ginger, along with calendula and lush peach flavoring to a blend of hand-plucked seasonal black tea. The result is a cup you'll want to sip throughout the day as pressures mount and your mind seeks a simple way to escape, if only for a moment. Warming, full-bodied and bursting with flavor, give thanks to the infinite knowledge of life.
Cup flavour: Turmeric meets sultry ginger peach.
Brewing tips:Water temperature 100ºC for 4-5 min.
Hot Brewing Method: Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teabag for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep to 2-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea)
Iced Tea Brewing Method: Place 1 tea bag into a teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6-7oz/170-200ml per serving over the herbal tea. Cover and let steep for 4-7 minutes, longer steeping time results in stronger tea. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional ½ serving. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed herb & fruit tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted.
