If you want to add turmeric to your diet, or if you’re looking for a soothing, healthy bedtime drink, you should try making some turmeric tea.

Combine:

  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cups water

Whisk together in a small pot and bring to a boil. Turn heat down and let the mixture simmer for 10 minutes. Add 2 teaspoons of honey, and drink. You may want to strain the tea before drinking it.

Warm milk mixed with turmeric, called “golden milk”, is another turmeric drink that’s perfect on a chilly day:

  • Heat 2 cups of milk over medium heat until it starts to simmer.
  • Add 1 tsp. turmeric, ½ tsp. ground cinnamon, ¼ tsp. ground ginger and a teaspoon (or more) of honey.
  • Whisk the warm milk until the spices are dissolved, and drink.

 Turmeric tea bags are very convenient. They combine turmeric with different spices to give you variety.  Absolute turmeric tea contains turmeric and ginger. Turmeric herbal tea is an exotic mix of turmeric, cardamom, fennel, and green tea.
