TURMERIC - Curcuma
Native to India, turmeric is a perennial plant of the Zingiberacae family whose name comes from Sanskrti: kunkuma, meaning which gives colour.
The roots or rhizomes of the plant have been used since ancient times reduced in powder as a spice in Indian cuisine, among others. The turmeric selected by Dammann Frères is cut into pieces and to be prepared as a hot drink like herbal tea. As a unique ingredient, it delivers an orange-yellow liquor to the infusion, sweet and light, with a warm and slightly peppery flavor.

KNOW-HOW & QUALITY
Loose teas and infusions
All our teas and the plants used in infusions are selected through the seasons by our buyers, directly from our producers. All products are chosen for both their visual appearance and their organoleptic qualities. Compliance tests are then commissioned from a COFRAC-accredited external, independent laboratory before any orders are placed.
Once received, batches are placed in quarantine while we carry out two more tests. The first is an organoleptic test completed by our specialists (taste, smell and visual). The second comprises a series of analyses at a COFRAC.-accredited, independent, external lab.
At our factory, we have developed special optical sorting and dusting equipment for our raw ingredients. Delicate items are sorted by hand.
Our teas and infusions are unique recipes available loose, boxed and in sachets. The loose leaf format is the most environmentally friendly choice.
