While well-recognized as a culinary spice, turmeric (Curcuma longa), a relative of ginger, also has a long history of use in China and India. Known for its many beneficial properties, turmeric has been traditionally used to alleviate temporary discomfort.
Preparation: Place one tea bag in a cup and add 8 oz of boiling water. Cover and steep for 10 minutes. Gently squeeze tea bag and remove.
In 1922, a group of alfalfa enthusiasts who believed that alfalfa's rich green foliage and deep root system contained "Vitamines" and minerals essential for good health innovated the way the plant was consumed by providing alfalfa in tea bags. The abbreviation of alfalfa and vitamins quickly led to the brand name "Alvita," and thus the Alvita Tea Company was born.
Every Alvita tea is infused with how much we care about every herb-and how each can benefit you. So making the perfect cup of tea starts with where we get our herbs.
