It happens this way every year. Sencha green tea in the spring, suddenly a lot of coffee and iced coffee in the summer, and by fall a return to tea—but not green tea necessarily. Numi organic tea has a new line of turmeric teas. They are the first line of organic, fair trade, premium turmeric-focused blends on the market and they are delightful. A personal favorite is Amber Sun, which is blended with rooibos, cinnamon and vanilla—calming, warming and detoxifying. Each blend is caffeine free. Turmeric is an ancient root related to the ginger family and has been used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. Curcumin, the medicinal compound in turmeric, is associated with relieving pain and arthritis, decreasing blood clots, preventing cancer, strengthening digestion, detoxifying the liver and healing skin wounds.
