Turmeric has been known for ages to be beneficial in many ways. Some research shows that it helps with reducing symptoms of arthritis with it's anti-inflammatory properties, helps to kill off cancer cells, slows the aging process and many other benefits. Here is my favorite tea using the goodness of turmeric in this flavor-infused wholesome warm beverage. You can use freshly grated or dried spice turmeric. I love Simply Organic brand from Frontier Foods if you can find it. Pure cranberry adds a delicious tanginess and is so beneficial to drink for those of us prone to UTI's. if you don't love the tanginess of the tea you can sweeten it with local honey and add a boost of protection against seasonal allergies. I love knowing that I'm doing my body good while enjoying this delicious tea. Most of all, I love the taste!
1 cup hot water (not quite boiling)
Juice of 1/2 or less fresh, organic lemon
1 - 2 tsp Turmeric spice, dried or freshly grated
1 tsp or less , to taste, 100% Cranberry Juice Concentrate (I love Dynamic Health brand)
1/2 tsp local raw honey *optional
Remember to stir the turmeric as you drink your warm tea since it doesn't completely dissolve. Enjoy!
