Vulcans are sure fond of plomeek, it seems. Plomeek soup is definitely the most famous food using this ingredient, but we cannot discount plomeek broth, or indeed plomeek tea. This drink was not shown on screen but seems to have been a regular fixture on the Enterprise NX01 menu (Enterprise: Singularity).
I’m not sure if plomeek is considered a healthy vegetable on Vulcan, but this tea is certainly meant to have medicinal effects. If various websites are to be believed, it will help purify your blood, cleanse your liver and kidneys, acts as an antacid and lowers your blood pressure. Disclaimer: not tested for health effects on Vulcans!
Regardless of the health benefits, this tea is refreshing, tasty and great hot or cold. It’s perfect for a Vulcan tea party - although that would be illogical, of course.
Replicate your own
(Makes 1 litre)
1 medium-sized beetroot
Juice from 2 lemons (about 100-120ml)
1 litre water
Mint, to garnish
Peel the beetroot, then grate until finely shredded.
Boil the water, then add the honey to the saucepan and pour the boiling water over it, stirring to dissolve the honey. Add the lemon juice and the beetroot, and bring to the boil again.
After it’s boiled, let the mixture steep for at least 30-40 minutes. Strain to remove the beetroot pieces, and pour into a jug to store.
To serve, reheat if desired, or serve at cold (add ice if you wish). Garnish with some mint leaves.
- I’d suggest wearing gloves when you peel and grate the beetroot, unless you don’t mind having pink hands for a day or two!
- I prefer my drinks to be not super sweet; you can always add more honey, or reduce the lemon juice if you want a sweeter drink.
