Tumeric Herb - Herbal Tea
Turmeric is a perennial plant in the Ginger family and is used as a spice though out the world but is native to the tropical region of South Asia.
The plant is cultivated for its stem and is reseeded from some of the stems. The stem is boiled for several hours and then is dried in hot ovens to be ground into a powder. The Turmeric powder will then have an orange-yellow color and a peppery taste that is popular in many cuisines.
