Behind the Blend: Yella™, Turmeric-Ginger Tea

2 minute read

Yella™ is a turmeric-ginger herbal chai tea made by the herbalist in charge at Ivy's Tea Co. 

Ivy's Tea Co. is a Hip-Hop inspired herbal tea company with hand blended herbal teas made in small batches to ensure optimal flavor, potency of the herbs, and freshness. 

This is essential to our blending process - it's part of why our customers love our blends.

Yella™ is a blend of Turmeric, Cinnamon, Cardamom, Clove, Fennel Seeds, Ginger Root, Licorice Root, and Black Pepper. 

The ingredients in the tea work together to support the digestive system. 

Below we highlight the benefits of the primary ingredients in Yella™. 

Turmeric is probably more well-known as a home remedy for arthritis, but the spice also has some historic use as a great home remed for digestive issues, like indigestion and irritable bowel syndrome. Turmeric works by stimulating the flow of bile in your body to help you digest fats. It's really dope stuff.

Cinnamon and Clove are well known flavoring herbs that support the digestive system.

Cardamom is a spice that's not often used in food in the US, but it is pretty popular all over the globe. The spice has chemicals that treat intestinal spasms, so it's often used as a digestive aid. 

Ginger has been used as a home remedy for nausea, motion sickness, morning sickness, and even menstrual cramps. 

Licorice root is used in the blend (a very small amount) to add a little sweetness to the blend, but it is also an effective home remedy for managing cough. 

Yella™ has all the spice of a chai tea without the caffeine of traditional chai teas. If you're looking for a chai substitute, we definitely recommend this tea.  

The turmeric-ginger tea pairs perfectly with Side Piece™, our cinnamon flavored honey. If you're tapped into our community by being subscribed to our email and SMS lists, then you might be able to try Yella™ with Stunt™, our limited edition turmeric honey.
