5 Reasons Why You Should Add Rangsaa to Your Fitness Regime

Fitness lifestyleIf you’ve wandered along your supermarket’s tea aisle over the past 5 years, you would have noticed a massive multiplication in the breadth and depth of choice in ‘herbal’ options, with mostly mundane and uninspiring flavor innovations.

We at Rangsaa are huge fans of powerful herbs, but were fed up of the weak, dusty flavours that ended up in ‘herbal’ infusions replete with chemicals and artificial substances. We realised there existed a gap in the market for innovative, 100% natural teas that also tasted delicious, loaded with the true power of herbs. A fitness and wellness movement, Rangsaa operates in a unique space. Our work revolves around an overarching aim to discover delicious yet effective ways to harness nature’s power in our teas.

The concept of healthy, nutritious tea is fast changing to go beyond green tea bags. Surprising as it may be, tea is becoming the latest fitness power drink around the world. Fitness blends are now a global trend among fitness enthusiasts, sportsmen, athletes and people into target training. However, the trend is yet to catch up in India.

When you work out, an adequate intake of fluids is essential. A healthy body results from 80% diet and just 20% workout, so being conscious of not just what you eat but also what you drink becomes crucial to your fitness journey. Imagine if your fluids came packed with strengthening and rejuvenating herbs. Rangsaa offers just that, bringing the fitness movement to the health conscious.

3. Naturally sweetened with Stevia – Rangsaa blends are naturally sweet and delicious with no added sugar. Stevia helps fight diabetes, thus making for a great option for diabetic patients looking for a sweet treat.

4. Multi-versatile – Not just a hot cup of tea, Rangsaa blends can be transformed into fitness drinks, smoothies, healthy cocktails etc. Our recipes take tea beyond the usual cup.

10 Ways To Make Tea More Enjoyable

tea-talk-6Tea lovers are constantly on the lookout for new flavors and novel tea experiences. Luckily for them, different styles of tea don’t always have to be about different kinds of tea. A little tweak here, a little tweak there and you can have an entirely new brand of tea! Try these simple tips to give your daily tea experience a delightful twist:

1. Ginger – Ginger is best known for its aromatic, pungent flavor and is widely used to compliment Indian dishes. Adding ginger to your cup of tea gives it a spicy flavor profile and makes for an effective way to fight common colds and an upset stomach. Add a dash of honey and you have just the perfect cup ready!

2. Lemon – Most tea drinkers swear by lemon. Add a slice of lemon or mix some lemon juice to give your tea a slightly sweet yet acidic taste that tingles your taste buds. Being rich in Vitamin C and low on calories, lemon also makes your cup healthier.

3. Fresh Mint Leaves – Add fresh mint leaves to either hot or iced tea for an invigorating, aromatic drink that relaxes you. Remember to crush mint leaves to ensure the release of essential oils in your tea. Mint works best with green and black teas and is also an excellent cure for indigestion.

4. Tulsi – Tulsi infused tea is known to be the simplest and the best cure against common cold. Adding basil to your tea makes for a soothing and rejuvenating drink that is high on health benefits.

5. Fresh Fruits – Add different fruits every day of the week and treat yourself to new fresh fruit infusions. You can go for apples, kiwi, strawberries, oranges, melons etc. to add to your simple cup of tea and enjoy a fruity brew.

6. Spices – Spices greatly complement tea to give rise to exciting flavor profiles. Some commonly used spices in tea are cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves etc. Cinnamon is routinely used to enhance the flavor of tea, giving it a warm wafting aroma. It is also known to fight diabetes and boost immunity. Nutmeg, though similar to cinnamon in aroma and taste, gives the tea a warmer flavor. It pairs especially well with black tea and again, comes with loads of health benefits. Clove is another favorite with tea lovers and has lots of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants.

7. Honey – One of the oldest tricks in the book to sweeten your tea, honey is delicious and pairs very well with different teas, and is very healthy for your body. Use honey in your daily cup of tea. You can consider raw honey or organic honey as they are healthier and better options.

8. Lemon/Orange Peel – Lemon and orange peels are not just a great addition to desserts but also work really well with tea. The peels are fragrant and can be used to give tea a nice zesty, citrusy smell and a fresh flavor. They work well with almost all types of tea, from black, green to herbal infusions. All you need to do is peel s0me and add to your brew.

9. Nuts – Nuts can give your tea a rich creamy flavor and can be used with all varieties of tea. Crushed almonds and walnuts work especially well with somkey teas.

10. Alcohol – Calm your nerves after a long day and unwind with alcohol infused tea. You can take your pick from vodka, gin, whiskey, rum as you’ll find different teas work with specific types of alcohol because of their flavor profile. All you need to do is add one shot of your favorite drink to hot/cold tea and get your own curated drink.

Tea is versatile and you can really step up your game by making it with some imagination. Try different flavors, experiment, explore and have fun. Invite your friends over, make interesting tea based drinks, surprise them and pass on the love. It’s all about discovering the world of tea, together. It’s the modern tea movement!

Tea for athletes

Intense training normally results in oxidative damage to muscles, inflammation, release of the stress hormone cortisol and possibly delayed-onset muscle soreness, or DOMS. A concentrated extract from black tea lowered the incidence and intensity of these side effects in a group of college-age male athletes, according to a study published in “Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition.” The reduction of these factors led to faster recovery and the ability to train more intensely.
