Anti Inflammatory Tea

Some time last month, I got bored with all my beverages, pulled out a French press and started adding everything I had on hand to make a decaf tea. Last thing I added was turmeric, and apparently I came up with delicious turmeric tea that is super popular these days. Which, by the way, didn’t cost an arm and a leg.

Turmeric Tea Ingredients and Benefits

turmeric powder

Turmeric: Bright yellow root from India you can buy it fresh at a health food store or in a powder form. Turmeric contains chemical compound curcumin that acts as anti-inflammatory, pain killer and cholesterol regulator. Turmeric also has been shown to kill cancer cells, help manage depression and prevent arthritis. (Source)


Ginger: Guess what? Fresh ginger root is not only good for making curries and stir fries but also for flavoring kombucha. Added to tea it will help you reduce nausea. Ginger, like turmeric (they both come from the same family along with cardamom), has high anti-inflammatory as well as antioxidant and immune boosting properties.

I always buy local organic ginger root because majority of conventional one is grown in China (and we all know by now that is not good, right?!).

raw honey

Raw Honey: I added a few tablespoons of raw honey to make turmeric tea taste good. I buy local raw honey instead of store-bought pasteurized one because its nutrients and vitamins haven’t been killed during heating pasteurization process. Raw honey is a good source of antioxidants, has antibacterial and antifungal properties, and is filled with phytonutrients.

Apple Cider Vinegar: Kills bacteria, lowers blood sugar and cholesterol, and aids with weight loss.

Orange: Optional but it adds nice flavour, more sweetness and vitamin C.

Now, that I have written out all health benefits of this anti-inflammatory tea above, I thought to myself “Wow, what a super drink!”. Well, I actually thought “Holy shit”, to be honest.
