LET'S TALK TASTE
This is a homage both to my heritage and to Bushwick Tea’s neighbors in Jackson Heights, Queens, NY, who, in this lively Indian community, delight in the health promoting properties of turmeric and ginger. These invigorating flavors are so prevalent in Indian and Asian culinary traditions. This is no ordinary G&T!
WHAT'S REALLY BEHIND THE NAME
When you're Indian like me, Turmeric, ginger and spices run through your veins before you're even born. Your mum makes sure it's in everything. America has Ibuprofen, India has Turmeric [as do most Asian cuisines].
Saffron Hues, lively spices, citrus notes
Organic ginger root, organic licorice root, organic curcuma root, organic lemongrass, organic orange peel, lemon peel, black pepper.
HERBAL [Caffeine Free] 212 degrees boiling spring water; 5+minutes steep. Remove sachet once steeped. Some like with a smidgen of honey
*our sachets are commercially compostable
What is the sachet [tea bag] and outer packaging made of?
Great question. We only use a corn starch based compostable bag that is sealed ultrasonically [without glue] attached to a string and paper. This tea bag can be composted. The individual wrappers have a foil barrier to retain freshness and is recyclable.
The tin can is sold empty as storage. This is an ideal option should you wish to purchase the naked bags [which is sachets in bulk without the outer wrap). You can fit anywhere from 12-15 sachets in the 8 oz empty tin can
