Jahmu Public Benefit Corporation was founded in 2014 with the mission of sharing the healing properties of turmeric and ginger. Inspired by the Indonesian elixir jamu, we began making a yellow beverage from raw turmeric root, ginger root, local honey, and organic milk. During a seasonal shortage of raw turmeric, we replaced the fresh turmeric root with organic ground turmeric powder. The ground turmeric was actually more nutritionally concentrated than the fresh turmeric root - which is mostly water, fiber and starch. We added cinnamon, cardamom, clove, nutmeg and other delicious spices to the blend to temper the sharpness of the ginger and give it a delicious flavor. Friends, family, and farmers market customers were delighted with the new concoction which was more like a turmeric-ginger chai tea than the traditional Indonesia street beverage. Jahmu PBC now offers 7 varieties of instant turmeric ginger chai teas as well as a Turmeric Ginger Extract which can simply be shaken in with cold water or added to seltzer.
