  • turmeric tea

    There are a lot of ways to make a good tea with turmeric. This is my preferred recipe because it's easy, quick and delicious.
    Shred the turmeric root and place into a french press, or diffuser. I typically use about a 1.5.-2 inch root, but use more or less according to the strength you like. (use caution as it WILL stain hands and surfaces) If using a diffuser, put into a mug. Pour hot water over the shredded root and allow to sit for 5 minutes or so. Add some honey (again to your preferred taste), and stir til dissolved. Add a squeeze or wedge of lemon, again to your preference.
    I like a lot of lemon. I like hot water just with lemon, though, so my taste is different than most. enjoy.

  • got the turmeric root finally but don't have a french press or diffuser

    • You can buy ready made turmeric tea from Waitrose and other supermarkets. My sister and I bought my dad some. Unfortunately, he did not like it. However, there are many who do. Whether you make it yourself or buy it from the shops, you should like it. I haven't tried it myself, though!


      • It's available in pill form, and in concentrated pill form. You'd have to drink gallons of the tea daily to get the amount recommended as an anti-inflammatory for e.g., joint pain.

          ok, thanks for the info


          • I beg to differ. If drank consistently it does work. Drinking a cup here and there, you won't likely see a difference, but if drank regularly, it works,
            And if you're making it strong enough. It needs to be a nice rich, deep orange. Needs to steep awhile to extract the goodies.

            And I do probably drink more than the avg user. My mug of tea is probably 2 cups, and I drink 2. So I get 4 cups per serving.

            So, it may be a cumulative effect in the body, generally I think.


            • I do love tea! I do find peppermint tea soothes the stomach and aids digestion. I love regular tea, though: I have 3 or 4 cups a day. Who could go without tea?

                The ethical vegans don’t eat dairy for that reason. It’s interesting how they view things. I found out recently that some of them will eat eggs and...
