When we got a bit bored with our Golden Chai Tea, we decided to re-visit the recipe to see what else we can add to give it a bit of a twist and make it stand out from the crowd. The Golden Triangle Tea is our new and improved version for a turmeric tea with ginger and pineapple. Whereas the pineapple is very subtle and just gives the blend a slight sweetness, the ginger, lemongrass and pepper add some spicy notes. All in all this soothing tea will leave you longing for more.

Why did we blend a turmeric tea recipe?
No longer is turmeric (Curcuma Longa) only thought of as the must have ingredient for an Indian curry. It is now the principal go to nutritional herb to help with an astounding array of medical conditions including: cardiovascular disease, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and diabetes, to name just a few.
Predominantly, turmeric’s benefits work due to it’s anti-inflammatory action which are made possible by the major component curcumin. Furthermore the herb shows potent antioxidant, hepatoprotective and anti platelet actions.
Research has found that combining turmeric with black pepper (Piper Nigrum) increases it’s bioavailability and therefore it’s therapeutic effectiveness.
