About your host
Founder Tanita became enchanted with the volcanic islands of Indonesia a few years ago, where she discovered Turmeric Tamarind Tonic, an ancient wellness tonic made from roots, herbs and spices. Tanita drank this ancient solution every day, and made it her mission to learn the secrets behind it. After returning to London, she began making the tonic in her kitchen apothecary for friends, before starting her first stall at Druid Street Market.
