Jamu is a general term for traditional Indonesian remedies/elixirs. It is sold on the street, stored in used bottles and served in a shared cup.  Some types of jamu are said to help with diabetes, others to increase fertility, make men stronger or even increase milk production. I tried a kind that is meant to be good for the skin. It tasted a bit like turmeric though it was warm, orange and bitter.
