TCM 12 DAYS OF HOLIDAY GIFTS: Turmeric Tea + Latte Sets from Vahdam
Welcome to the ninth day of our 12-Day Holiday Gift Guide! Join us daily for gifts we’re obsessing over, and an exclusive offer to shop for the season…
Love turmeric and want to get your parents or a girlfriend hooked on the incredible anti-inflammatory benefits? Same!
Here’s how: For the holidays, gift everyone these gorgeous, Oprah-approved gift sets of turmeric-based teas or lattes and let the rave reviews begin. Oprah herself is a fan of Vahdam’s turmeric tea gift sets, including them in her epic gift guide twice.
Bala Sarda, the 28 year-old brains behind Vahdam, is heating up the tea industry through the direct sourcing of iconic Indian herbs and superfoods to create premium, organic teas, elixirs, and latte mixes that make mindfulness second nature.
Vahdam’s Turmeric Tea + Latte Gift Sets
There are several special gift options for turmeric lovers at Vahdam: our top picks include the Organic Turmeric Wellness Detox Box and the Turmeric Latte Mixes. We’re thrilled to include these, plus Vahdam’s gorgeous holiday gift options as part of TCM’s 12 Days of Holiday Gifts.
THE GIFT: Vahdam’s Organic Turmeric Wellness Detox Box. A set of four organic turmeric-based teas potently paired with a variety of delicious herbal and superfood combinations.
Let’s spill the tea…
THE CLASSIC Turmeric Spiced If you’re a turmeric newbie (no judgement), opt for this classic turmeric tea that incorporates black pepper for optimal absorption, the subtle flavor of lemongrass, spicy ginger, and warming Ayurvedic spices like cardamom and cinnamon. This tea is our secret weapon for overcoming sluggish digestion—especially after a post-holiday meal.
THE FREE RADICAL FIGHTER Turmeric Moringa Like turmeric, moringa has been used for thousands of years in ancient medicine. Moringa is an adaptogen that is super high in vitamin C, making it an amazing source of antioxidants. Once combined with turmeric, this tea is ideal for immune support, or just an energizing refresh.
THE STRESS BUSTER Turmeric Ashwagandha Moringa isn’t the only adaptogen in the Vahdam mix. Ashwagandha—which is officially a part of the Los Angeleno vocabulary at this point—is famous for its stress-combatting properties. The long-and-short of it is that ashwagandha (like many adaptogens) helps your body better adapt to stress over time. Less stress, afterall, means less inflammation.
THE DIGESTER Turmeric Ginger When turmeric and ginger are paired together, it’s not not like bringing the band back together again. Both ginger and turmeric are a part of the same Zingiberaceae family (now say it three times fast). While they both help with digestion and support immune health, they are also a slam-dunk team when it comes to fighting inflammation. If you’re in the mood to keep things simple, get after it with these two spicy divas.
More of a latte person than the tea bag-steeping type?
For the perfect pick-me-up morning, noon, or night, blend your choice of turmeric tea with coconut milk for a frothy cuppa — or add to your oatmeal or smoothie for a flavorful boost!
WHY WE’RE OBSESSED: It’s funny when superfoods trend — after all, turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic traditions for thousands of years. However, turmeric is having a moment as more of us experience the plant’s powerful anti-inflammatory benefits for the first time.
Adding turmeric teas and lattes blended with other powerful superfoods to your daily ritual might be the most pleasurable way to uplift your routine.
Vahdam’s sourcing practices also caught our attention as they source India’s finest herbs and superfoods without multiple middlemen like auctioneers, retailers, and suppliers. All earnings stay directly with the farmers and regions from which the herbs are sourced, meaning more opportunities for farmers to grow and earn.
WHY IT MADE THE GIFT GUIDE: We’ve been whipping up turmeric lattes for years, but these gift sets let us share the love in style! There’s nothing like turning a friend or family member onto something that’s actually good for their health and the science behind turmeric’s benefits are undeniable. (It’s also an ancient beauty secret for glowing skin!)
Love turmeric, but know your mother or bestie won’t? Here are four other gorgeous — and low-key glamorous — tea gift sets from Vahdam that also make great gifts and will still apply to our exclusive offer of 15% off throughout the holidays.
