Turmeric Tea Recipe



We have all heard the news about turmeric and its wonderful healing properties but what is the best way to consume it?

Simple with black pepper! Yup, black pepper is a miracle in its own right but mixed with turmeric the two become the super heroes of the spice world!

I make a paste of honey and turmeric that keeps in a jar for easy use. I heat water, pour it over a spoonful of the paste, and finish with a big squeeze of lemon and a substantial amount of freshly ground black pepper. It’s good stuff – the black pepper makes it invigorating (and also helps the body absorb the turmeric), and the honey sets off the earthy-acridness of the spice enough that the tea is still delicious.

Write a review
  1. • ⅓ cup raw organic honey
  2. • 2½ teaspoons dried turmeric
  3. • lemon
  4. • lots of freshly ground black pepper
  1. Work the turmeric into the honey until it forms a paste. You can keep this on hand, in a jar, for whenever you’d like a cup.
  2. For each cup of tea, place a heaping teaspoon of the turmeric paste in the bottom of a mug.
  3. Pour hot (but not boiling water) into the mug, and stir well to dissolve the turmeric paste.
  4. Add a big squeeze of juice from a lemon, and a good amount of black pepper. Enjoy!
  5. Stir now and then as you drink so all the good stuff doesn’t settle to the bottom, or top off with more hot water as you drink it.
  1. One thing – use mildly hot water here, but not boiling – to help preserve the properties of the raw honey. You can also blend the paste into smoothie, or swirl it into yogurt but the black pepper may not taste as good as in the tea!
