This is best answered in the words of its creator, Jocah:
“I originally created the Turmeric Green Tea Chai because of a health crisis I was enduring, in the form of severe fibromyalgia. I was completely crippled by the pain, spending days or weeks stuck on the couch, barely able to move. In that time I read about turmeric and its amazing anti-inflammatory effects, so I decided I wanted to include it into my diet, to see if it would help.
I should note that I could have bought supplements; but I believe supplements, if used at all, should be supplemental to a health giving lifestyle – and I knew I needed a change to my everyday livingness. Therefore I wanted to include turmeric into my lifestyle, throughout my day – in its wholefood state.
Learning that the active ingredient, curcumin, was better absorbed if black pepper and healthy fat were consumed at the same time, it dawned on me that the handmade chai I enjoyed might be able to be adapted. So I got to it – filled with hope. As I was already and grinding my chai spices in a mortar and pestle, it was easy to start tweaking the recipe. However, as if blessed from above, the very first attempt worked brilliantly – and it had quite the grunt – and thus GrunTea was born! Rich in flavour AND healthful benefits. Mmmmm
Then, to my delight, my quality of life started to improve, with reduced pain and greater mobility. Clearly the turmeric and other potent spices were working their healing magic within me!”
So that is how GrunTea originally came into being. But it didn’t stop there…
Being sensitive… the small amounts of caffeine were too much for Jocah to drink after 4pm, and so he began looking for something to swap with the green tea – so his GrunTea could be enjoyed in the evenings. Not so blessed this time, much research and testing ensued. Finally nettle leaf proved to be a perfect match and so GrunTea’s Turmeric Nettle Leaf Chai came into being.
As to why we are creating it for sale? Well that is because almost every single person who has tried GrunTea, has fallen in love with it and wanted to buy it – so we simply had to make it available for everyone!
So get some healthy Grunt into your life – whether you drink it for its healthful benefits or just for its delicious taste – build deeper connections by sharing a cup of hot stuff with those you love!
