I’ve read about the awesome properties of turmeric for a long time, and have looked at tons of turmeric tea recipes, so I decided to make a batch last night. Plus, remember, I told you I’m totally becoming obsessed with Eastern medicine/spices/herbs. I worked off of this recipe here: Turmeric Tea. I really liked her recipe and how simple/easy it was. I made a larger batch (just increasing spice quantities) so I can keep it in the fridge, and just have a mug when I feel like it. It was extremely easy, and literally tastes like warm comfort in a cup.
If you haven’t read about how powerful turmeric is, you should! Pretty interesting stuff, but most well-known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
- 8 cups water
- 4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ground cloves
- 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 2 tsp ground turmeric (testing the waters here…)
I boiled everything for about 15 minutes, then let it cool a little and strained it. I don’t typically add any sugar/milk, etc. to my tea or coffee, but because my blood sugar was a little on the low side last night, I said what the hell, let’s try it with the honey and coconut milk. Holy soothing!
