TURMERIC TEA RECIPES



 
 ULTIMATELY YOU BASICALLY BOIL THEN SIMMER WATER AND A TEASPOON OF TURMERIC, YOU MUST DRINK HOT OR WARM SO THAT IT CAN GO TO YOUR LOWER INTENSTINES AND GET IN THE BLOOD STREAM. YOU CAN ADD GINGER ROOT, CINNAMON, HONEY, I USE ALMOND MILK, LEMON AND VARIOUS OTHER SPICES TO THIS DRINK.  THE TURMERIC STAINS EVERYTHING SO DEDICATE A POT, SPOON AND CUP TO YOUR NATURAL CURE, IF YOU ARE MAKING AN ACNE OR ANTI-AGING MASK, HEMMROID PASTE, A PASTE FOR CUTS AND BURNS I WOULD SUGGEST USING OLD CLOTHES AS IT WILL STAIN. THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY SWEETIES, YOU'VE BEEN SWEETENED.......HERE ARE OTHER SUGGESTIONS:
 
 
 
Yogi Bhajan, founder of the Yogi Tea brand, recommends this hot turmeric and almond oil tea (also called "Golden Milk" tea) for joint and bone health. Putting oil in tea may seem strange at first, but I promise the result is heavenly, and quite soothing. Just be sure to use almond oil and not a substitute in this turmeric tea recipe! Try adding a bit of cinnamon too, if you like.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp turmeric
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup milk or soy milk
  • 1 tsp almond oil
  • honey, to taste

Preparation:

Stir together the turmeric and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer and allow to cook, stirring, until a thick paste is formed. Use 1/2 to 1 tsp of this turmeric paste for each cup of Golden Milk tea. Add turmeric paste, milk, almond oil and honey to saucepan and reduce heat to low. Bring milk just to a boil then remove from heat. Whisk briskly or blend if you prefer a frothier drink.

Creamy Turmeric Tea 

To call this beverage tea might be a little misleading. “Creamy Mug of Warming Deliciousness” is more accurate. It just plain feels good to drink this slightly sweet, slightly spicy blend of heated almond (or coconut) milk, turmeric, ginger, cayenne and honey. Turmeric tea will perk you up in the morning, calm you down at night and soothe sniffles and sore throats. It’s also a really pleasant way to end a meal.

At first glance, the ingredients might not sound like a combination you’d want to drink. Something magical happens in the mug, though, and the result is richer than regular tea, less intense than coffee and oddly delicious. Turmeric is the dominant flavor and admittedly, one that takes a little getting used to. Although not spicy itself, turmeric’s slightly bitter, earthy flavor is the perfect backdrop for other spices, which is why it’s a main ingredient in curry powder. The ginger and cayenne in this tea aren’t overwhelming because they’re floating in creamy, turmeric-infused milk that’s been lightly sweetened.

 

Turmeric is ginger’s mellow cousin and is a root used just as often for its bright yellow-orange color as it is for flavor. Turmeric powder is a frequent ingredient in East Indian, Middle Eastern, South Asian and Caribbean cooking and is also believed to have numerous healing properties. When cooking with turmeric, it’s most often used in conjunction with ginger and spices like cumin, cinnamon and coriander. Moroccan Chicken Casserole is one dish that benefits from turmeric’s flavor. If you’d like to use turmeric more often, you can also add extra turmeric to dishes that already have curry powder in them, like Butter Chicken or Beef Curry Meatballs. Or, after trying this recipe, you might just go through all the turmeric in your spice rack by brewing mugs of Creamy Turmeric Tea.
