If you’re unfamiliar with making tea from spices, I know it may seem a little strange and you might make a face like my husband did the first time he saw me drinking it. However, it’s really good and and so full of health benefits I’d recommend giving it a try!

There are a number of different ways to make turmeric tea so you don’t have to go all out like I did with the latte. I often just make it with turmeric, ginger, cinnamon and lemon and it’s really nice just like that. You can also add a little maple syrup or raw honey to sweeten it.

You may be thinking, why, oh why would you want to drink tea made out of spices traditionally used in curries!? Well, turmeric is a true superfood and with the addition of ginger, cinnamon and coconut oil you are really getting all the good stuff! It’s an amazing way to start the day or deliver energy and nourishment for an afternoon pick-me-up.

Turmeric has natural antiseptic and antibacterial properties, it’s a natural liver detoxifier, is a powerful anti-inflammatory, it can help to manage weight, soothe an upset stomach and it’s may be help protect the brain from degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
