Enjoyed hot or cold, Pukka’s tran-seasonal Turmeric Gold tea combines Indian turmeric, Sicilian lemon and green tea to deliver the earthiness of green tea, the warmth of spice and a citrusy lift of lemon – expertly blended by co-founder and Master Herbsmith, Sebastian Pole.
“We are delighted to unveil our first turmeric tea – a golden tea that will colour your life,” Pole said. “Turmeric is renowned for its vibrancy in colour and we want Turmeric Gold to give people the feeling of vibrancy, invigorating the whole body. Most people have heard of turmeric in cooking but through our [new turmeric tea], it is now easier than ever to get your everyday consumption of this super spice.”
In addition to the antioxidant-fuelled health benefits that green tea provides, turmeric is rich in health-boosting benefits of its own. These are also natural anti-inflammatory ingredients. Studies have also shown that turmeric can help reduce the severity of bacterial and viral infections; improve digestion and circulation; relieve pain and to protect cell DNA.
Turmeric Gold is made using high quality organic herbs and spices that are Soil Association certified. The tea also uses the FairWild certified herbs, providing a guarantee that the herbs have been wild-harvested ethically and the farmers have been paid fairly for their work. Pukka sells at RRP $7.95, which is distributed by Organic Trader and is available from selected health food stores, independent grocers and online at www.pukkaherbs.com.au.
