Tumburuk Himalayan Tea – REGULAR (Thymus Linearis)
The ultra-healthy people of Himalaya drink Tumburuk herbal Green tea made with a herb called tumuro or Tumburuk which they pick from the mountainside; this herb was once mistakenly identified as ‘tomorrow’ tea by visitors in 1970s who sent back exaggerated reports of Himalayan people living to the ages of 130 and 140 years old. This herbal tea is blended with specially vested high quality ingredients to increase efficiency. This tea works as a Detox Tea and you can read more about it in our blog section.
Fresh Tumburuk is not easy to source but if available can make fresh green or Tea. But Tumburuk is usually dried and preserved to use it later. It’s also very easy to dry it. Just spread fresh Tumburuk on a flat surface and leave it for a couple of days. Once it has dried, transfer it to a jar.
Make sure always have some dried Tumburuk on hand during the winter time because Tumburuk tea helps to relieve cold symptoms and especially cough. There are quite a few studies that confirm the beneficial effects of thyme so it’s great to have it handy during flu season.
HOW TO MAKE TUMBURUK HERBAL GREEN TEA:
Making Tumburuk (Thyme) tea is as easy as steeping a few thyme sprigs in hot water. You will need about 3 thyme sprigs for 1 1/2 cup of boiling water. If you have a tea ball infuser, you can also chop the thyme sprigs before steeping.
Thyme tea tastes great on its own and you can also add a slice of ginger, lemon, and a little bit of honey to the tea.
Cold thyme tea can be infused with different fruits. Just add some apple or peach slices to the cold thyme tea for a refreshing drink.
