I strongly believe in making tea that is both healing for the body and delicious to the palate! The best way to start that is to source the absolutely best ingredients that I can find. It has taken me on many adventures since 2009! This past year has been a passion for sourcing the best US grown ingredients for a blend of the powerhouse duo of Ginger and Turmeric! I could not be happier with the outcome!! Let me take you through my journey!
I feel like I have tried every possible organic ginger and turmeric on the market. But there was always something that help me back from making the best blend. Tea blending is far more than just throwing together ingredients, it is focusing on the flavor of different processes as well as how different grades and cuts of herbs and teas work together. Sometimes the best of one ingredient just does not pair well with the best of another ingredient. Its crazy how it works, but when its your passion you do not stop searching!!
My quest took me to finding the best possible ginger and turmeric from the Islands of Hawaii!!!!
These plants need plenty of rainfall and a nice warm climate which makes Hawaii and ideal location for this plant!
Straight from the earth in all its beautiful glory!!! Ginger and Turmeric have long long lists of health benefits!
In fact, Hawaiian Red Turmeric (Olena, native to the Hawaiian Islands) is very different from yellow turmeric found in most health food stores. Curcumin is the most active constituent in turmeric and extensive research has come out about the many many health benefits of curcumin! Testing has been done on this wonderful Hawaiian root and it has come in at up to 16.5% total curcuminoid content!!! There is as little as 2% content in many turmeric options available, so when I heard these numbers I HAD to get my hands on some!!!
And let me tell you, not only is the Hawaiian varieties exceptional in testing labs, but it is highly superior in flavor!!! The freshness, OOOOHHH the freshness!! Seriously, sipping a cup of goldenmilk right now and I feel like I'm back on the beautiful islands of Hawaii, but Toto I am still in Kansas! Stay tuned for another post about how to make a great Goldenmilk!!
To seal in the freshness and beauty of these Hawaiian healing roots, local lime juice is squeezed onto the cut roots to lock in the island!
