Ingredients for Turmeric Tea Recipe

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.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
