Haldi is a sacred spice used on the Indian subcontinent in cooking, in medicine and in rituals; most notably the haldi ceremony usually held a day or two before a wedding. In different regions of India, it is known by different names and is best known in the Western world as turmeric.
Why Kuwano tea
If Sachin Tendulkar is the rockstars of the tea world, then in many ways Kuwano is the Dhoni of tea world. It forms the backbone to the most popular ‘English Breakfast’ blends, but alone is often sneered at by tea enthusiasts. Its robust, malty and slightly in-your-face flavours lack the deft touch of many of its contemporaries.
At their best, well-produced loose-leaf Kuwano teas are bright and with a bread-like malty flavour; perfect as an early morning coffee replacement or as a caffeine fuelled kick from your afternoon slumber. Their rich honey and spiced notes can be deep and comforting.
