Turmeric, or curcuma or koenir, is a spice that is extracted from the root of the Curcuma Longa. This plant belongs to the ginger family.
Turmeric is widely used in Chinese and Indian cuisine and is not only a very popular spice, but also a popular superfood. The beneficial active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin which has anti-inflammatory properties and acts as an antioxidant.
The flavour of turmeric can be described as somewhat bitter, with a slightly peppery character and a hint of orange.
In addition to turmeric, this Turmeric Mix also contains a variety of other ingredients:
- apple, ginger, cinnamon, almonds, anise, emergency nutmeg and cloves.
In short, a delicious spicy blend gives a boost to your immune system.
Did you know that tea can also be wonderfully combined with savory foods?
I put it to the test with a delicious piece of old Cantal cheese, brought from the beautiful Auvergne in France. Cantal cheese has a strong taste. Spicy, slightly salty and with full tones in which a creamy, almost vanilla-like hint can be detected. Curious how it tastes in combination with an Oolong from Tanzania?

Last week one of our nicest customers, Chloe, came by for a pleasant conversation at our tea table.
Chloe started a podcast last year where she interviews people who play a role in her life. Today it was my turn and I was allowed to elaborate for more than half an hour about one of my great passions ... tea. Follow our conversation on Spotify!
I think every parent encounters this at some point. Isn't there a better alternative to lemonade or fruit juice for your kids? Even the healthy drinks are often still full of sugars and artificial additives. Tasty, but not really healthy. Offering only water is not always an option either. As a mother of two young daughters, I was always faced with this dilemma. Fortunately, as the owner of a tea shop, the solution was close at hand!
