Turmeric Tea is the new superfood! Everybody’s talking about it including Dr. Oz, so who are we not to listen! We’ve tried and tested it and would like to recommend it with two thumbs up to all of our customers! Yes, the bright yellow-ness and intense taste of turmeric are slightly intimidating, but if you’re up for a nourishing, highly anti-inflammatory and antioxidant packed drink, here’s a recipe for you:

2 cups of water
1 teaspoon powdered turmeric
1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
1 large teaspoon honey (or more to taste)
Juice of 1/4 a lemon

1. Bring water to a boil, and add turmeric and ginger. Simmer on the stove for 7-10 mins.

2. Add lemon and honey, stir well and drink up! If you have fresh ginger on hand you can use that instead but be careful, it packs a powerful punch!

If you dare to try this tea, let us know what you think and how it made you feel. If you are still wavering, we have 2 tealish teas that will also help you get some turmeric goodness:

Herbal Energizer
Himalaya Saffron White Tea

We don’t sell pure powdered turmeric, but our friends around the corner at The Spice Trader have a superb organic turmeric that we highly recommend. Check them out at their beautiful new location on Queen St!

    Hi! I had a herbal tea blend recently that really tasted curry-like, it had fennel, fenugreek and maybe tumeric (it certainly tasted tumeric-y 😉 I am moving to Ontario soon and will be in Toronto lots so I can’t wait to come see tealish!!! Check out my blog and contact me if I can do anything for you.

    I have a question, do you think it would be all right to boil say a liter of plain turmeric tea from powder and store it at room temperature for a week? I only want to drink around a cup a day and I don’t want to be boiling so often since I only have limited access to a stove.

      That’s a good question. If you used our recipe, because of the inclusion of ginger, lemon and honey I would probably store it in the fridge to be safe. If you just boiled plain turmeric maybe, but I really can’t say for sure, sorry!

    Would you guys prefer this tea on a empty stomach in the morning, or anytime during the day?
