Step Aside Matcha, There’s a New Wellness Tea in Town Spa Week All Stories, Food & Drink, Wellness 1 Comment We can admit it, we too have hopped aboard the matcha tea craze. With tons of health benefits coming from the frothy green drink, it’s easy to see how it gained so much popularity in such a short time. Since this major trend only went mainstream over the past year or so, we weren’t expecting anything better to pop up on our radar anytime soon. That’s why we were surprised when we came across Art of Tea‘s ‘Bright Eyed’ blend. This tea features a combination of ginger, cinnamon, sarsaparilla, and most importantly, turmeric. Despite being totally delicious, it also packs a seriously healthy punch because turmeric boasts loads of female-friendly health benefits. It can help clear skin, regulate menstruation, and it has anti-inflammatory properties. Even though this tea isn’t due to debut until early October, check out what Master Tea Blender and Founder of Art of Tea, Steve Schwartz had to say about this tasty beverage. What makes Art of Tea’s blend of turmeric tea unique? I use the principles I learned at the Ayurvedic Institute in every tea blend I create. The Bright Eyed turmeric tea is all about balancing taste with wellness. What are some of the health benefits of turmeric? Are there any added health benefits of putting it into a tea instead of taking it as a supplement? Using turmeric extract in a tea allows one to enjoy the health benefits while potentially increasing its absorption. We blend the best ingredients possible for a quality tasting product and balanced experience. What made you decide to combine the flavors found in your turmeric tea? All our blends are based on taste first, then the wellness components. We were experimenting with sarsaparilla and found that its rich, earthy flavor combined well with those of turmeric and ginger. The cinnamon adds a nice finish and plays off of the spicy notes of the ginger and black pepper. Can the turmeric tea be enjoyed hot or cold? Bright Eyed can be enjoyed either hot or cold, but I recommend drinking it hot or warm – that allows for the botanicals to be better absorbed into the body.
