The Restorative & Healing Power
of Turmeric Tea!

I thought I'd try making a cup of turmeric tea after reading about it during my research on the health benefits of this spice and its main active ingredient curcumin. Being a huge fan of green tea and its associated health benefits, trying various other "spiced teas" seemed a good idea!

As I'm not suffering from any illness or ailment, I can't vouch for the many exciting turmeric health benefits or whether this tea is effective, but I do test for flavour and taste. All I can say is it's powerful stuff, and the lemon juice mellowed it slightly.
