Turmeric Tea

 

I was checking out one of my favourite blogs the other day and found this recipe.
I knew I wanted to try it because I love all of the spices listed.  Perry and I were shopping at a local Asian market yesterday and saw some fresh turmeric, so I decided this was the perfect excuse to try making turmeric tea!  I'm sipping it as I post this and it is absolutely delicious!!!

Here are some pics....
 
cinnamon stick, fresh turmeric, fresh ginger, cloves and nutmeg


 I used my handy little grater for the nutmeg


I ground the cinnamon and cloves in my spice grinder.  Grated the turmeric and ginger with my microplane.



Look how vibrant the fresh turmeric is!!


Oops, maybe I should have worn rubber gloves!! :-)


Simmered for 10 mins., strained and served with milk and raw honey.

  2. I have to admit my tongue did have a yellowish tinge to it after drinking the tea, but it was worth it!! :-)
