What is Jahmu?
“Jamu” is the Indonesian name for an elixir made from turmeric, ginger, and other herbs. Jessica learned how to make it while she was living in Indonesia. Back in the US, she experimented with different blends of turmeric, ginger, black pepper and other healing Ayurvedic spices and created her own blend of delicious chai tea mix which she named, “Jahmu.”
Why is there black pepper in the tea?
Studies show that black pepper helps the body to more easily absorb curcumin, the main anti-inflammatory component of turmeric. When turmeric is consumed without black pepper, a larger amount is necessary to gain its miraculous benefits.
How has turmeric changed my life?
Jessica suffered from Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome for 4 years. She found that drinking turmeric-ginger tea improved her digestion and completely healed her intestines. She also shared her tea with her father and grandmother who then experienced dramatic relief from their arthritis symptoms. Turmeric, ginger and all of the other spices in this tea have been used for medicinal purposes in Asia for centuries.
Why did Jessica create Jahmu PBC?
Millions of Americans suffer from chronic inflammation and inflammatory diseases. Unfortunately, turmeric is not a typical ingredient in the American diet. Jessica wanted to find a way for Americans to consume more turmeric and ginger in an easy and enjoyable way.

Why is there sediment in the bottom of my cup?
Unless you continue to stir the tea as you drink it, some of the spices will settle to the bottom. However, most of the nutrients will have dissolved into liquid so you still get the health benefits whether you eat all the spices at the bottom or throw them out.
How many cups should I drink?
Whatever feels right for you! Most of my customers drink 2 cups a day. Listen to your body!
Is Jahmu okay for Pregnant women?
You may take the following information into account but please ask your doctor and do your own research before consuming any of our products. From the limited research we have done about the spices which make up Jahmu, we have found that one of the spices, Fenugreek, may not be desirable for pregnant women to consume.
Massive amounts of fenugreek have been known to induce contractions which could cause a miscarriage. While there is only a little bit of fenugreek in our tea, it is not a risk I would take. Which is why we have a fenugreek free version for pregnant women! it is not offered directly on the website but I have several customers who buy it without fenugreek and it still tastes good.
There are many benefits to taking fenugreek after pregnancy but I would avoid it until you are ready to give birth. If you would like to order some fenugreek free Liquid Sunshine it is 9$/oz and you can just email me how many ounces you would like and we will send you an invoice. One ounce makes about 28 servings.
