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.


  1. Did the tea turn your mouth yellow too? :-)

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