#STteaDays - Turmeric Tea


Now that Fall is here and Winter is approaching we will be introducing different healing tea recipes every once in a while, so that you can tackle any cold coming your way. 



This tea is simple. It's a made out of just warm water, turmeric, dried sage, ginger and lemon. You can add to it agave syrup to sweeten it a bit, or even any kind of green tea leaves you have. 


Say yes to yellow to tea! Fear it not. 



  • Water
  • Turmeric
  • Powdered or sliced Ginger
  • Dried Sage
  • Cinnamon
  • Juiced lemon
  • Honey or Agave Syrup
  • Green tea or lemon grass tea


Add all to taste, add water, turmeric, ginger, sage, cinnamon, lemon in a pot to boil, simmer for 15 minutes,  then add green tea for 2-3 minutes and pour into cup. Add and stir honey or agave syrup to taste.




Turmeric Benefits:  
  • Turmeric contains Curcumin, which is a natural anti-inflammatory compound. 
  • Curcumin is an antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals due to its chemical structure and it also boosts the activity of the body's antioxidant enzymes. 
  • Improves brain function.
  • Lowers risk of heart disease.
  • Can help treat cancer - multiple studies have shown that curcumin can reduce growth of cancerous cells and inhibit growth tumours in test animals.
  • Helps with arthritis.
  • An effective antidepressant.
  • Has anti-aging properties and great for healthy long living.


What to consider before buying Turmeric for health reasons:  

Is it 100% pure? Make sure it doesn't contain any fillers or binders.

Make sure what you are buying is organic. For capsules, BioPerine should be present for maximum curcumin absorption. It is also easier to find 100% pure turmeric in U.S. manufactured products.

  7. Tea in general is something I love, especially when a cold comes along. But as I don't like ginger or the taste of turmeric I think I´ll pass on this one and wait for the other suggestions you´ll have coming.

  36. Hey!

    Thanks for sharing this informative and healthy information!

    Turmeric has tons of advantages that can heal and cure harmful diseases.It is stepping out as an anti inflammatory that has power to reduce the inflammation.

    I have tried turmeric tea and within a weak I felt relieved from my joint pain and I realized that it is far better than normal tea.

    Turmeric tea is really effective .It can also be blended with ginger .

    Keep posting!
