Turmeric is an ancient root used for its healing properties for centuries. Turmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma Longa plant. To manufacture it, the roots of the plant are boiled, dried and then ground into a powder. Traditionally used in Chinese and Indian medicine (from killing fungus to curing cancer), the powerful anti-inflammatory and antiseptic qualities of turmeric have made it a precious commodity for ages!
I also happen to love it's flavor. Bitter, warm and sweet, Turmeric evokes oranges and ginger on a Galician landscape. I have been using it in all my cooking for some time, but this tea inspired by Ayurvedic traditions is a great evening companion of late.
