This Turmeric tea recipe is one that I make frequently, and the ingredients I use are those that I enjoy. Change the other herbs and spices to suit your health and flavour preferences.
Turmeric has been used for centuries in India. Ayurvedic medicines contain these bright yellow roots. Turmeric is a common spice found in most Indian kitchens. I always use organic ground turmeric or GI tagged turmeric in my teas and regular Indian cooking. As a colouring agent, metanil yellow is sometimes added to packaged turmeric. As a result, it is preferable to obtain unadulterated ground turmeric or organic turmeric.
