Dry leaf smells surprisingly creamy and lemony. It is very pretty with little pieces of dried orange turmeric, green tiny lemongrass pieces, and dried ginger.
OK,,, I make a homemade tisane with fresh turmeric, lemon, and honey so I was wondering how this would taste using dried turmeric. I do like it, the turmeric is not as prominent- tasting when it is dried.
This tisane is really naturally sweet,,,I had to look at the ingredients to see if there was a drop of stevia added but it is just a very good blend (good bc I don’t like stevia lol).
This has sweet flavors of lemon, almost a creamy edge (this must be the oils on my palate), and just a touch of a ginger taste. The turmeric really just lends its color to the liquor.
I do like the taste of fresh turmeric but it is a stronger and acquired taste,,,so this herbal would be a great introduction for someone wanting to try the health benefits of turmeric. Plus I like having a back up bc sometimes my store is out of fresh turmeric and fresh turmeric can mold if you don’t use it quickly.
