Have you noticed the recent hype of turmeric and turmeric powder? It's hard not to! We are seeing this spice more and more in today's food and drink recipes! We even have guests coming into our stores asking about a Turmeric tea! But why? What's so special about turmeric?
Turmeric is a plant that grows in Asia and Central America. We commonly see it ground into a powder on spice shelves. Turmeric is traditionally used to flavor curry and other Indian dishes!
The active ingredient in Turmeric is called curcumin, and it comes with lots of health benefits! Turmeric also contains iron, manganese, potassium and Vitamin C, according to the USDA.
Some of the benefits of Turmeric include:
While OBTC currently does not offer a tea with Turmeric Powder already in it, you can add turmeric to any of our teas! Try blending it with the Blood Orange Tea to add some citrus flavor and Vitamin C! Or try blending it with Ginger Chai for a Ginger and Turmeric Flavor! Since our Turmeric is in powder form, all you need to do is stir in about a teaspoon (or as much as you like) into whatever tea you choose!

Hello! My name is Maggie! I am a Marine Scientist that was moved to the New Mexican desert with my family by the Air Force! That move was never in my plan, even in my wildest dreams, and I felt lost in the desert for awhile! Meeting the founding owners of Old Barrel Tea Company and falling in love with the store allowed me to find an oasis in the desert! I had no idea what loose leaf tea was, but now I believe in this company and the product! I hope that I can extend some of the love and knowledge with all of our followers and readers!
