Growing up on a nature reserve in Cape Town, herbs and spices were an essential part of life. Turmeric was a favourite of my mother’s, who learned about the positive benefits of this vibrant yellow spice when studying Ayurveda.
Her enthusiasm and faith in the medicinal properties of this golden spice, meant it was used for the whole family (even our dog), for everything from herbal infusions to grazed knees.
After years of experimenting with various concoctions to find the best combination of ingredients, I’m glad to say my mother’s recipes greatly improved. These recipes and her quest to make turmeric tasty, inspired Taka and our range of delicious health-giving drinks & teas.
With love, Talia
