Note: Turmeric tea should be consumed in moderation.
Turmeric: You can use the fresh turmeric root or turmeric powder to make this tea. 1 tbsp of grated turmeric or ½ a tsp of turmeric powder is what is needed for a cup of turmeric tea. However, you can increase or decrease the quantity as per your liking.
Spices: Although optional but why not? You only enhance the taste and goodness of your tea with a few spices such as cinnamon, black pepper, etc. I have used these along with cloves. You can use spices of your choice such as cardamoms, star anise, etc.
Sweetener: It is absolutely optional to sweeten the turmeric tea. However, if you wish to you can add in sugar or maple syrup. I have used honey. If using honey it is important to not add it when the tea is too hot. Strain it and add honey.
Lemon: Lemons, a great source of Vitamin C and adds a kick to the beverage! I have used lemon juice. You can also use lemon zest. Instead of lemon zest, you can even flavor the turmeric tea with orange zest.
