Introducing Turmeric Tonic: Ginger, Spice and All Things Nice

Herbal teas are some of the cheapest, healthiest beverages you can drink. Tea has been enjoyed as a health-promoting habit around the world for over 4000 years, valued for both its medicinal qualities and taste. Research has shown that teas offer many health perks, which change depending on the plant but all stem from the variety of phytochemicals that offer antioxidants and other balancing benefits. Tea is also a good vessel for hydration, something we could all use a helping hand with.

Herbal tea is made from the flowers, leaves or roots of plants and herbs. Most are caffeine free, with the exclusion of green tea and guarana, which contain a small amount of caffeine, although nowhere near the amount found in coffee. That is why you’ll often hear of people swapping their coffee for green tea as the high caffeine content in coffee can make them jittery and anxious. Substituting with green tea will still provide that much needed kick.

If you couldn’t already tell by the extensive range we have available along with our blatant enthusiasm, we love herbal tea here at Morlife. That is why we’re so excited to introduce our brand new baby, Turmeric Tonic. Revitalising, caffeine-free and formulated as always by our in-house team of naturopaths, this intimate elixir will nourish your insides and leave you with a wonderfully warm sense of wellbeing. 

 

Why another tea?

Turmeric is a cherished herb, popular among naturopaths and the general public. And for good reason - It has a high antioxidant capacity and has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine for strengthening and balancing the body from within. Knowing this, we knew it was our duty to create a tea dedicated to this incredible spice. Turmeric Tonic is also a great aid for warming sluggish digestion, and since we’re currently all about the gut, what better time to launch this body-loving brew than now!

 

What makes Turmeric Tonic so good?

Different spices do different things, so combining a selection is far more beneficial than consuming a singular spice on its own. That is why we have chosen to pair our main star with Ginger and Licorice root which are both well-known for soothing and supporting the tummy.

In terms of taste, our Turmeric Tonic is far from the bright yellow curries you’re likely thinking of. This tummy-loving tea takes turmeric to another dimension, merging punchy ginger with the refreshing citrusy-sweet notes of Lemon Myrtle and Orange Peel. What’s more, Turmeric Tonic will get your taste buds tingling (literally) thanks to the addition of chilli and black pepper, making for an amazing, aromatic flavour.

Combined with the warming element of Ginger, our Turmeric Tonic is perfect for this time of year, when all we want is a nice hot cuppa to battle the cold. It is also a great option for those looking for a healthy alternative to caffeinated beverages.
