Description

Golden spice organic herbal tea

Our naturopath formulated Golden spice organic herbal tea is our take on the traditional Masala Chai. Originated in India in the early 20th century, and literally means “spiced tea”. It is full of revitalising ayurvedic spices, traditionally used to support circulation and aid the digestive system.

Therapeutic benefits

Assam tea – Known for its tart, malty flavour, vigorous body and bright colour. Packed full of antioxidants, boosting immunity and heart health. Assam tea contains caffeine to increase mental alertness throughout the day but with only half to a third of the amount of caffeine compared to a cup of coffee.

Cardamom pods – Used to aid digestion including heartburn, intestinal spasms, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and loss of appetite.

Ginger – Increases saliva and other digestive fluids, relieving indigestion and aiding digestion. Recommend for treating nausea and morning sickness. The anti-inflammatory properties help relieve swelling and pain.

Cloves –  Help improve digestion by stimulating the secretion of digestive enzymes. Cloves also  and acts as an expectorant, making it easier to cough up phlegm.

Black peppercorns – Increases hydrochloric acid secretion in the stomach, thereby aiding digestion. Pepper also help in the absorption of turmeric.

Cinnamon – Renowned for its antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Cinnamon is used in Western herbal medicine for its ability to lower blood sugar by improving insulin resistance.

Turmeric – Curcumin is the compound in turmeric that has potent anti-inflammatory property and antioxidant properties. Research shows that inflammation is a contributor to many diseases such as heart disease and Alzheimer’s.

Star anise – Rich in antioxidants which help fight free radicals. Anise also helps improve digestion, alleviate cramps and reduce nausea. Consuming star anise tea after meals helps treat digestive ailments such as bloating, gas, indigestion and constipation.

How to brew the perfect cup of tea

Measurements & ratios

The recommended ratio is 1 teaspoon per cup of hot tea. If you like it nice and strong, add an extra teaspoon and brew for the recommended time.

To serve

Save your milk for black teas – most green and herbals are best served straight up.

Temperature

Swill a little hot water in your teapot or cup, then discard. This will keep your teawares from cooling your tea too quickly. Green and herbal teas prefer 80°C, so just combine 20% cold water with 80% boiling water.

  • Black tea & Oolong 100°C 2-4 minutes
  • Green tea 80°C 1-3 minutes
  • Herbal & floral tisanes 80°C 3-5 minutes
  • Rooibos & honeybush tisanes 100°C 3-5 minutes

Loose leaf vs. tea bags

One of the main reasons we love loose leaf tea is the flavour. Usually loose leaf tea is higher quality than the tea in tea bags. Sometimes, tea bags are used to disguise lower quality tea leaves, but with loose leaf you can’t get away with that.

Most commercial tea bags are created using plastics, bleaches, glues, staples and other nasty things that are best avoided in your daily cuppa.

Another reason is because we love the environment. We hate to have a compostable material such as organic tea & herbs trapped inside little plastic pouches. Our teas are completely organic, so be sure to empty your loose tea leaves into the compost or the garden.
