Like many hot and peppery spices, ginger flourishes in the hottest climates in the world, as though it’s trapping the warmth of the sun’s golden rays and transforming it into amazing infusion of flavour.
Our ginger benefits from being grown on an organic farm in southern India: its the hot and humid landscape that gives our ginger the perfect conditions in which to flourish.
We use this super spice in many of our teas and supplements; explore for yourself with
Lemon, Ginger and Manuka Honey tea, Lemongrass and Ginger tea as well as our Three Ginger tea.
Sebastian Pole, Sebastian Pole, Co-founder and Master Herbsmith
Hello There. I’m a Co-founder and the Master Herbsmith at Pukka Herbs. As well as having the most amazing job of formulating all our organic teas and supplements I am a passionate environmentalist – that’s why we are 100% organic, pioneers in sustainably sourcing herbs with FairWild, and we give 1% of our
turnover for rejuvenating the Planet. I also run my own herbal practice in Bath which I’ve done since 1998. I practise an eclectic blend of Ayurvedic, Chinese and Western Herbal Medicine and am a registered member of the Ayurvedic Practitioners Association, Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine and the Unified Register of Herbal Practitioners. I love using the principles of Ayurveda (aka the ancient art of living wisely) – coupled with insights of traditional healing and modern science - to help create the best of health. Inspired by my time in India, I love cooking a vegetarian feast and rely on regular yoga practice with lots of herbal teas and tonics to keep me well. I am passionate about running a business that inspires positive change and brings the benefit of the incredible power of plants to everyone we connect with – from our farmers, collectors, Pukka team to you. I live on a two acre garden-farm in Somerset where I grow a rainbow spectrum of medicinal and nourishing plants for my bees and family to thrive on.
