Orange & Turmeric Pairings: Add Some Zest to Your Summer


You may have seen our article about lemon, ginger and honey tea, but there are many other ways to add a pop of citrus to your tea.

Turmeric and citrus might not be the first flavor combo that comes to mind, but the two flavors complement each other perfectly, and the fruity citrus will get you in the mood for summer.

While turmeric mixed with orange juice is all the rage right now, mixing these flavors in tea produces a lighter, healthier drink. Our new Turmeric Citrus Zing tea melds turmeric and orange peel to balance earthy tones with zesty ones.

The best part about our Turmeric Citrus Zing tea? You can enjoy it with recipes like these, which also feature this summer’s favorite flavor duo.
