Tumeric is a perennial flowering plant in the ginger family. When dried and ground, it can be used to dye fabric or season food. This spice is acclaimed for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It can be used to help treat toothaches and colic, and may help in the prevention and treatment of depression, heart disease, and some forms of dementia.
What’s In My Cup: Tumeric Gold by Pukka Tea. It contains tumeric root, wild jade green tea, licorice root, cardamom pods, lemon and lemon verbena leaves. This tea had a warm, peppery flavour (with that undertone that comes with green tea) and an aroma of earthy mustard, But best of all, that fabulous golden colour.
All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. – J. R. R. Tolkien
