What are the active ingredients in Pukka Turmeric Gold Tea?
Pukka Turmeric Gold Tea contains five active ingredients, which include:
Turmeric (Curcuma Longa) is a member of the ginger family and is cultivated in a very similar way to its close relative, Ginger. Known as the 'Golden Goddess' in India (where Pukka grow their organic turmeric), turmeric contains over 230 compounds which display biological activity. The Essential Oils and curcuminoids are considered to be some of the most important.
Lemon (Citrus Limon) is packed with Vitamin C, essential oils and bioflavonoids. The fruit of the lemon tree is cultivated in tropical climates globally, and loved for its sweet-sourness worldwide ***Pukka use slow-dried whole lemons from Sicily***
Green Tea (Camellia Sinensis) has been famousily used for centuries in Japan for its detoxifying properties. Sourced from the Suoi Gang tea plant, these green tea leaves are unfermented and flash dried to give a lighter flavour and higher content of Antioxidants than Black Tea.
Licorice (Glycrrhiza Glabra) is a sweet, earthy and delicious ingredient that perfectly harmonises a cup of tea. Pukka source their licorice from 'FairWild' projects in Spain and Khazakstan ensuring that both what they take will be regenerated to be there in the future and that the collectors are paid a fair wage.
Cardamom (Ellataria) is a warming aromatic spice that has long been used in cooking and herbal medicine. Farmers across the world value organic cardamom so much, that is has earned the name 'the green gold'. ***Pukka use cardamom sourced from an organic project in Guatemala***
