My momma is from Okinawa, Japan and they have the ultimate detox tea. Turmeric tea. She sends me packets of it every few months. It’s one of those things where it’s an acquired taste.
Whenever I feel like my system needs a good flush I make a batch of this stuff. Perfect for when I’m about to come down with a cold or had a little too much bubbly. I love making this at potluck parties too. One time I brought the ingredients to a friends house to brew some up after we had dinner and drinks. Everyone was very skeptical at first and soon they were asking for seconds and thirds. Now every time we get together it’s one of the things people ask me about. Since I talk about this recipe often, I thought I’d share it with you on the blog.
1 Turmeric tea pack or 3 tablespoons turmeric powder
2 tablespoons of freshly chopped ginger
1 stick of cinnamon (broken in half)
1 spoon honey (or agave syrup)
1L hot water
Combine all ingredients in a temperature resistant jar or pot.
Make sure the honey dissolves completely.
I like it hot in the winter, and cold in the summer ?
Do you have a favorite detox tea you drink? Is it something you make yourself at home? I’d love to know! Leave me a comment.
