Tumeric has long been used as a very powerful anti-inflammatory. So enjoy this incredibly healthy tea, with a taste that is oh so delish!

Tumeric Tea

Peace, love, & happiness in a cup, man! This cup of yumminess can be enjoyed any time of year… But, for now, we’re approaching Christmas (for real!!?), so baby, it’s cold outside and the last thing I’m wanting to pick up is an ice cold anything! Bring on the warmth!

I call this my Hippie Tea cause it brings me peace, love, and happiness! I suffer from chronic back pain, and I love to research how to use nutrition as a source of healing for my body.

Enter Tumeric! Gosh, this stuff is awesome! Tumeric is an herb that is probably best known as a main ingredient when making curry.

So…what’s it doing in a tea?! So glad you asked!

Tumeric has long been used as a very powerful anti-inflammatory in both Indian and Chinese medicine. You can get it in capsule form or as a powder. For this recipe, we’ll use the powder, which is readily available in most grocery stores and whole food markets.

Healing Tea

This is “a little bit of this & a little bit of that” kind of recipe, but for those that need measurements, the following are approximate:

 

1/2 tablespoon powdered Tumeric

1/2 tablespoon raw honey or whatever honey you can get your hands on

1 tea bag of choice.. I would recommend a lighter tea. I love to use Country Peach Passion by Celestial Seasonings

1/4 c. of Coconut milk (or almond milk, soy milk, cows milk, or half & half)

Boil enough water (with your tea bag) to fill your cup 3-4 full. Put the Tumeric and the honey in your cup, then pour the tea in. This will melt your honey. Mix together. Pour in your milk. Stir. It should be slightly creamy. Enjoy! It’s so yummy!

    My friend just told me about making a turmeric drink and how good turmeric is for you. I found you on Pinterest. I’m pinning this and sharing it with my followers. Thanks!

      Stacy, thank you so much! Tumeric tea is SO yummy, and I hope you love it as much as I do! I appreciate the pin! I found and just followed you on Pinterest! Hope to stay in touch!

      Hey! I’m so glad you popped by! Tumeric is not so much for pain, as it is fabulous anti-inflammatory, which can lead to reduced pain! You can also buy Tumeric in capsules for daily use, but start slowly, if you go that route. It also has multiple benefits for skin & hair, including improving your skin’s elasticity (anti-aging)! I hope this helps, and see you soon! ?

    This sounds delicious. I always add honey to my tea, not the other way around. I’ll try it this way next time!

    Glad I found you through the Traffic Jam Weekend Linkup.

  3. I’ve heard so many good things about turmeric and never tried it (except in curry of course). Your recipe seems simple and delicious. I’ll have to give it a try. I found your post at the Homesteader Hop.

    This is great! I will totally take you up on this tea when all of my old running injuries stiffen up in the winter months. And, I’ll be sharing it with my momma who battles rheumatoid arthritis. Happy Saturday, from the Dare to Share link up! Megs
