Turmeric Fact: adding black pepper to your favorite turmeric dish increases the bioavailability of curcumin (turmeric 's active ingredient) by 2000%! Normally curcumin is metablized by the body but black pepper contains peperine which increases absorption of curcumin in the body! Hint hint - each of our Turmeric Teas blends contain black pepper!
Cardamom Cashew Matcha TeaFor this week's #teatuesday I felt like a little extra anti-oxidant matcha action because you know #momlife 🏽This tea tastes like dessert and I didn't even add sugar. Hope you love it
Add 5 gently smashed cardamom pods and a dash of vanilla to 1.5 cups cashew (or other) milk and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Whisk in 1-2 tsp matcha powder until well dissolved. Strain, take a deeeeeep breath and enjoy Add a dash of maple syrup if you must. Skip the matcha and offer it to kids before bedtime (no scientific evidence for this but grandma's wisdom says cardamom helps with sleep ) #cardamom#spices#tea#spiceupyourhealth | #spicespicebaby
