A new Turmeric Chai tea is hitting Waitrose this month in time for International Tea Day on 21 May.
Launched by Tea India, the Turmeric Chai offering comes as ‘feelings of uncertainty and anxiety continue’.
“Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, has strong antioxidant properties essential for cell function with studies showing that diets rich in antioxidants may help lower risk of infections and disease,” noted the firm.
“Turmeric is also famous for its immune-boosting properties and has long been used in Indian recipes and as part of Ayurvedic medicine.”
The turmeric blend is comprised of turmeric, ginger, fenugreek, assam black tea, galangal, cinnamon, and Indian psyllium. A pack of 40 sachets retails for £2.50.
