Zesty? Yes. Turmeric? No.

Really, there’s no turmeric in this tea – or, at least it’s not on the ingredient list, and I couldn’t taste, smell or see any in the blend.

Still, it’s quite tasty! A bit of a spicy zing to a citrus peel twang, along with a LOT of hibiscus (I say a lot, but really, it’s just my tastebuds… I don’t love hibiscus). There’s a touch of woody rooibos in the mix, and I swear something more spicy too, but again, nothing on the ingredient list to say what it might be.

Regardless, with a bit of sweetener, this is really tasty and easily drank. I’ll happily finish this generously sized sample bag (good for about 5-6 cups of tea).

A beautiful hug in thanks to The Tea Time Shop in NYC for sending me an enormous package of sample teas for me to taste, test out, and review. Like, we’re talking a dozen teas with about 5-6 cups each. WOW. Many thanks!

They told me at the tea fest that turmeric needs pepper or spice to activate it. I don’t see any turmeric or spice in the ingredients!

@indigobloom – Yep! I’ve had an avurvedic doctor tell me the same, years ago. That black pepper activates the anti-inflammatory ingredients in turmeric… hilariously, only one company makes turmeric pills with pepperin (pepper extract) in it!

I think the tea is mislabeled somehow, I’ll have to ask the owner. I do, however, want to try their turmeric chai now though, which I didn’t get in my enormous sample package.

I’m curious as to what they say now, and how the chai tastes! I bought some at the festival, I enjoy it but wouldn’t consider it a traditional chai. One of these days I’ll get around to making turmeric milk/paste for my tea
