This is the easiest way to get your daily dose of turmeric.  Drink this Turmeric Tea twice a day for best results!


Servings 1 cup of tea

3/4″ of fresh turmeric root
1 – 1 1/2 cups of boiling water
honey or maple syrup to taste
1/2″ of fresh ginger root (optional)


Wash the turmeric (or ginger root thoroughly) then slice about 3/4″ of an inch of the turmeric root very thinly.   Put it in your favorite tea cup add water that has just come to boil, let steep for 3-5 minutes.  Add your favorite sweetener (or not) to taste. You can make the tea in a teapot and strain it as you pour, if having the turmeric bits floating in your cup is bothersome.
