Add 20ml (1 sip) of hot milk/water, then whisk/stir to make a paste.
Fill up with your choice of hot milk.
We enjoy our turmeric hot chocolate blend on its own, but you can add honey or a hint of vanilla to your liking. In case you prefer a more lavish chocolate flavour, simply add an extra spoon of the turmeric cacao blend.

Detailed Description of Each Ingredient
This highly regarded and diverse superfood has been cultivated since the times of the ancient Mayans, and contains a unique blend of phytonutrients and antioxidants offering an array of nutritional benefits to support overall health and wellbeing.
Our raw Peruvian Cacao is made by cold pressing un-roasted cacao beans. This gentle method maintains the integrity of the plants molecular structure resulting in a higher antioxidant content and greater overall nutritional value of minerals such as magnesium, calcium, copper, zinc as well as other trace minerals.
Raw cacao empowers concentration, vitalises energy, uplifts mood and much more. It is known to protect cells from oxidation and inflammation, improve mental ability, support immune health, reduce chronic fatigue and may protect against cancer and heart disease. Raw cacao also contains powerful flavonoids and precursors to serotonin and dopamine, which have shown to alleviate depression, avert anxiety, minimise stress and stabilise mood.
A tall perennial herb native to south-east Asia. It is one of the most widely studied spices, showing potent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti platelet and
hepatoprotective actions. Besides boasting cardiovascular health by supporting arterial circulation, turmeric may help prevent damage to the liver and improve
liver insufficiency. Some studies suggest it to be equally as effective at treating depression as antidepressants. Traditionally it is also often used as a beautifying
spice, as it can help relieve a range of skin conditions from psoriasis to acne, giving you a healthy glow from within.

Researchers have isolated over 134 different compounds imparting potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, phyto-estrogenic and immune-stimulating benefits. It’s anti-inflammatory and demulcent actions make it effective
against heartburn, acid reflux, nausea, indigestion, gastro-intestinal ulcers, leaky gut and IBS. Its antibiotic and antiviral properties potentiate the immune system

Liquorice is also one of main adaptogen herbs to help improve stress response as it can effectively regulate cortisol, thereby supporting both the adrenals and
immune system. Lastly, it also appears to have an estrogen-like effect in women, lending itself to the treatment of conditions such as PMS and menopausal hot
flashes. To this day, it remain as one of the most used herbs in Traditional Chinese medicine, and its synergistic nature means it is often used in conjunction with

Native to South America and the Southwestern United States, mesquite is a low GI sweetener that is high in protein. It is rich in a number of vitamins, minerals and amino acids such as magnesium, iron, potassium, zinc and calcium which is good for healthy skin, hair and bones. Mesquite has a high fibre content, low glycemic index, high mineral content, anti-fungal properties and immune-boosting abilities. Its abundance in soluble fibre helps a smooth digestion and healthy gut flora. The low glycemic index means that it does not need insulin to be broken down and won’t cause blood sugar spikes. Furthermore, mesquite is a source of omega-3s, which makes it good for controlling inflammation.
Black Pepper This king of spices is native to southern India. Since ancient times black pepper is one of the most widely-traded spices in the world. In addition to being an exceptional culinary spice, it is known to offer a number of health benefits; of note it has exceptional carminative effects on the gastrointestinal tract, minimising gas, coordinating and regulating gut motility, thus improving and soothing digestion. Pepper boasts antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and
expectorant properties. It also works synergistically with other herbs to enhance bioavailability, absorption and transportation thus maximising their efficiency,
which is particularly true with turmeric.
Black pepper is a rich source of minerals like manganese, copper, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, iron, potassium, a range of vitamins and a unique chemical called ‘piperine’. It relieves coughs and colds, boosts metabolism, treats sinus, asthma, nasal congestion, reduces the risk of cancer, and heart and liver ailments. Furthermore pepper may improve memory and cognitive function, and promote anti-aging and life extension.

Meet The Supplier
Back to where it started
Just like the rest of us, Organic Merchants Tea know that tea makes everything better! Founded by the beautiful Chalimah Jeanne, the business was a natural extension of her naturopathic work, where she’d blend teas for clinic patients who were particularly low in vital energy.
Realising that everyone kept coming back for more, she launched her business at the local market with 12 herbal loose-leaf teas, and six years later, OM Tea now stock an extensive premium range of 35 different herbal teas, all naturopathically formulated and 100% Australian Certified Organic.
About the tea
Since starting, OM Tea has grown to include several ranges of tea including the more traditional teas, fruit based teas, pregnancy and breastfeeding tea, iced teas and the more recently launched mantra range of teas.
With 35 different teas to choose from, it’s safe to say there’s something for everyone. All the teas are made from the highest quality, organic, loose leaf herbal infusion. The loose leaf tea is hand-blended and minimally processed (the way we like it!) which of course means that the nutrients are at their highest potential.
Love the planet, Love the packaging
Chalimah is a self-confessed hippy at heart, so two years ago she went about overhauling all her packaging to be as earth-friendly as possible.
The entire range is presented in reusable glass jars and biodegradable sachet boxes made from 100% Australian recycled paper with a compostable plant-based cello-bag. It’s all either 100% biodegradable, compostable or recyclable. It looks beautiful and keeps the earth beautiful too!
