Turmeric Tea

By Gabby

Due to popular demand, I present Turmeric Tea. Actually it's turmeric and cinnamon, but it tastes great and it a nice way to change up your liquid intake and possibly benefit from the anti inflammation properties of the turmeric.
If you like Chi tea, you will like this flavor as well. Adding milk is up to you.

Turmeric Tea
photographer: Gabby
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric

  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • 10 cups filtered water

  • 6 packets of Truvia (optional)

  1. In a paper coffee filter place your spices and put in your coffee maker basket.

  2. Pour 10 cups of water into your coffee maker

  3. Allow your maker to run the entire cycle. The spices tend to make the drip process very slow, so if your pot tends to over flow, use only 6 cups of water and add the rest for a second brew using the same spices and filter.

  4. If you do not have a coffee maker (or don't want to mix your flavors) a boiling pot of water will work. Wrap your spices in the coffee filter and tie VERY tight and steep the spice mixture until you have a golden tea.

  5. Add the sweetener if you like and serve hot or iced.

  6. This will keep in the refrigerator for only one day, so it's best to make only what you will drink in a day to keep it from getting "scummy" on top.

This sounds good but due to severe nose bleeds (thankfully have not had in a couple months now) I can not use turmeric. Anyone with bleeding problems should not use. This came from my doctor. I tried it once but my nose bleed so bad it took almost an hour to stop. May not effect you so don't be afraid to try if you want to, I just know that turmeric makes my nose bleed worse when I have it.

I have started using a broken up cinnamon stick now. I got Cyleon cinnamon and it's much softer than the other and easy to break up the stick in my coffee maker basket.

I just add my turmeric, fenugreek, ginger and cinnamon to my almond milk and heat it up. I will try just making it into a "tea" type drink as well. I get these spices in bulk at a local Indian grocery store. They package their spices in larger quantities than you can find at a regular grocery store.

If you find that it slips through the filter on the Kcup use a paper coffee filter to strain out the remaining grounds a small strainer and coffee filter should do the trick! Good luck!

Wow, beepath. That is exciting. I drink a pot a day when I make it and I love it too. Glad it's working for you so well.

Drinking 10 cups a day, no more Diet Dr Pepper. Even if it is cherry flavored. What difference in my knees and fingers. May take awhile to help with back and neck which is OK, can't afford the co-pays, anyway.

I am not sure it will work in a K cup. The spice makes the drip process very slow and it is very fine, so I am not sure it will stay in the cup and not end up in your cup. But try maybe 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/8 teaspoon of turmeric. Let us know how it works if you try it.

I like the tea. I need the cinnamon for reducing blood sugar and hubby needs it to help with arthritis. . I used the boiling water, with spices in a coffee filter, way of doing it…and poured it in a quart jar to steep. The first one I did, actually sealed but I had to unseal to take the spices out. I sent it home with my sis in law to try. Maybe she'll continue on using it for her arthritis.
