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.
2 teaspoons ground turmeric
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
10 cups filtered water
6 packets of Truvia (optional)
In a paper coffee filter place your spices and put in your coffee maker basket.
Pour 10 cups of water into your coffee maker
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.
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.
Add the sweetener if you like and serve hot or iced.
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.
