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.

Here are 5 reasons why Rangsaa blends are a great addition to a fitness enthusiast’s arsenal:

1. Unadulterated delicious power – Rangsaa blends are the best alternative to chemically loaded and sugary energy drinks. Made with nature’s most powerful botanicals, Rangsaa is packed with vitamins and nutrients that improve stamina, boost vitality and reduce muscle stress. 100% pure and natural, our blends help you experience the power of nature with pure deliciousness.

2. Powerhouse of herbs – Our blends are formulated with superfood herbs like moringa, ginseng, seabuckthorn leaves, gotu kola, cramp bark, Indian gooseberry and other speciality target-focused herbs that help you energise and improve stamina.

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. Perfect for people who love experimenting, our blends are easy to incorporate in your fitness journey. If you want power on-the-go, you can use our fitness tumbler to assist you.

5. No-caffeine option – If you want to stay away from caffeine but still want an energy-booster, our blends are here for you. Our tisanes, which are pure herbal infusions, are caffeine-free and boost stamina naturally. They also offer multiple so you can sip power all day.

When you drink a cup of Rangsaa, you sip in the essence of nature and experience a medley of nutritious, colourful, tasty and aromatic molecules that protect against stress and exhaustion. Whether you hit it hard at the gym, run a 10k to train for a marathon, swing kettlebells at home, sweat it out on the yoga mat or do laps in the pool, Rangsaa is your one-stop fitness drink. Our blends help you energise before your workout, keep you going during your session and help you recover and restore post workout.

At Rangsaa we go back to the basics, turn to nature and bring you tea blends and tisanes that help you energise, elevate and feel amazing even after a thoroughly exhausting session. Whatever be your fitness goals, say goodbye to sugary drinks and switch to a cleaner lifestyle with Rangsaa. Gift yourself a healthier, fitter and better you and experience tea like never before.

Tea Cocktails – Not So Looong Island Ice Tea

tea-talk-2Surprising as it may sound, the centuries old LIIT, a favourite cocktail for many, has now started seeing an innovation of sorts with actual tea in it.

The tea trend has motivated bartenders to explore new tweaks and additions in old drinks, especially in a bid to cater to health-conscious individuals. In a world where schedules are tight and the pace of life increasingly fast, more and more people are drawn towards natural and healthy substitutes for traditional dietary options, giving rise to an increase in the number of tea adapters.

High-end bars and cocktail lounges across the globe have started seeing a shift towards various tea-based cocktails that are now gaining wide popularity. Cashing in on this trend towards ‘healthy’ cocktails, even alcohol and coffee producers are exploring fusion styles with tea.

What makes tea and alcohol the ideal partners for the perfect drink? The inherent natural synergies present in the two beverages and similarities in flavor and aroma lend great beauty to the mixture. The two complement each other and result in a concoction made superior by the combined flavor profiles.

Sarah Allard, Founder of London-based company  Leaf and Liquor, is a strong proponent for tea cocktails. In conversation with LoveforTea she says, “ I do like mixing whiskey with tea – it works particularly well with rich, malty black teas and smoky/charcoal flavored teas. She further adds, “Tea is so diverse – the depth of flavors means you can create a cocktail base that has a multi-sensory effect. Most of us enjoy a cup of tea and green tea consumption is on the rise. It’s only natural the next step is to explore the creative levels to which we can take the humble leaf – something consumers really enjoy and appreciate.”

The delicate balance of unique flavours found in a tea blend with the right kind and amount of alcohol can make for stunning hot and cold cocktails, a territory an increasing number of mixologists are venturing into. Maureen Donegan, the Bar Director at Presidio Social Club in San Francisco says, “Tea is versatile and yields myriad flavor profiles when paired with different ingredients. The combinations are endless. The opportunity to use an herbal tea with, say, a herbal liquor, is a big advantage to a non-caffeine drinker.”

Tea is mutitalented in nature, offering something for everyone. The number of liquor brands globally that are taking to creating tea cocktails goes on to highlight the popularity of this mixture across the world. Alcohol leader Johnnie Walker is an active player in the space, with it’s website featuring quirky and easy-to-do recipes. Tea Enriched Alcohol, a London-based premium gin and vodka brand, is another interesting player that specialises in tea infused spirits. Long Leaf Tea Vodka, Australia’s first tea infused vodka also seems to be riding on the back of the trend.

So the next time you’re out on a Friday night, don’t forget to ask your bartender for an exciting new tea cocktail!
