We all have our go-to-remedies and today I would like to share with you one of mine.Turmeric is one of the world’s most powerful natural healers. Its active ingredient curcumin, has been known for centuries to have extremely potent medicinal properties and is documented as being effective in treating a variety of conditions.
Other than the occasional curry, I struggled to add this beneficial root herb to my diet. That is, until I created a Turmeric Chai Tea!
My palate rejoices simply at the thought of this drink.
Turmeric Chai Tea Recipe
Serves: 4 Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: None
Turmeric Chai Tea Powder
3 tablespoons ground turmeric
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground clove
1 teaspoon ground cardamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1-2 teaspoons cayenne pepper (optional)
Mix all ingredients together and store in a glass jar.
Note: Cayenne pepper, although optional in the recipe, will speed the turmeric through the blood stream by relaxing blood vessels down to capillaries and allowing more turmeric to get to the infections faster.
Serves: 1 Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: None
4 teaspoons of Turmeric Chai Tea Powder
1 cup water
sweetener to taste
1/2-1 cup warm milk (i.e. almond, hemp, coconut, etc.)

Pour water over spices and steep for 10 minutes.
Strain through a fine mesh sieve or a cheesecloth.
