Turmeric Ice Tea
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
1 teaspoon of freshly grated turmeric or turmeric powder
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated ginger or ginger powder
1 tablespoon of honey or liquid sweetener of your choice
2 cups/480ml of cinnamon tea
a pinch of pepper
Prepare your cinnamon tea by boiling water and letting the tea infuse for about 5-10 minutes (you want there to be a strong cinnamon flavour).
Wait for the tea to cool completely before adding all the spices and sweetener. Whisk to combine and serve immediately on ice.
Tip 1: You can also use chai flavoured tea bags or ginger tea if you prefer. If using ginger tea, please replace the ginger in the above noted recipe with cinnamon.
Tip 2: For a child-friendly version, add 1/4 cup of apple juice.
Tip 3: Please don’t leave out the black pepper; it helps you absorb the turmeric.
