Ginger: deliciously diverse

It’s in the 1,000-mile ribbon of mountains known as the Western Ghats that much of our ginger is grown – an area designated by the IUCN as one of the world’s richest biodiversity hotspots. In its native home, ginger is surrounded by a diverse range of medicinal and culinary crops where it soaks up the sun giving it intense heat. We capture its fiery nature, and harness its gingery-glow in a wide variety of our teas and supplements.

When the beautiful yellow flowers of the ginger plant appear, it’s a sign that it should be harvested. The farmers we work with will dig out the root, which is dried before being blended by us and wrapped for you.

You’ll find a golden orb of ginger in our warming and invigorating Three Ginger Tea, Revitalise and our chai blends, as well as in supplements such as Vitalise used for increasing energy and Wholistic Trikatu: a peppy combination of ginger, black pepper and long pepper.
