With COVID-19, better known as the Coronavirus, running rampant, we’re doing everything we possibly can to keep our immune systems strong and healthy — including frequent hand washing and other cleanliness measures recommended by the CDC. While other preventative measures, such as taking extra vitamin C, won’t keep you from catching the disease, it certainly can’t hurt to keep our wellness in mind when we’re going about our daily activities, such as drinking tea.
There are plenty of benefits that go hand-in-hand with sipping on your favorite cup, such as reducing cognitive impairment, helping with symptoms that can result from certain conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease, and protecting your teeth and bones. Copper Cow Coffee Golden Latte ($15, Tea Drops), however, have the added bonus of organic turmeric — a superstar ingredient that will give your immune system a much-needed boost, delay aging (yes, really!), and reduce any inflammation you may be dealing with.
Born from the same family as ginger root, this powerful ingredient is often used in Indian cuisine and has many health benefits. It contains curcuminoids, or medicinal compounds, such as curcumin — an antioxidant that can relieve oxidative stress on the body and quell any undue swelling.
These organic, pressed teas, which dissolve in hot or cold water, come five to a pack. You’ll also get five sweetened coconut milk packets — an antioxidant-rich substance that also helps to kickstart your immune system and improve your hair and skin (among other things) — to sweeten the flavor.
According to reviewers, the combination of the turmeric and the coconut milk tastes like a dream. “This tea has such wonderful taste, and is so simple to make!” wrote one happy shopper.
“Great afternoon pick-me-up!” chimed another of these Copper Cow Coffee treats.
To use these drops, which also come in a Chai Spice ($15, Tea Drops) or Thai iced tea ($15, Tea Drops) flavor, simply make your tea as normal, add one of the coconut milk to your beverage, and stir — aah!
We’re feeling better already!
