The benefits of turmeric I list in detail in my post, Benefits of Turmeric, but some main ones are that it is anti-inflammatory, protects your liver, keeps diabetes at bay, and provides pain relief. Since I quite daily coffee, I enjoy warm beverages such as this easy homemade turmeric tea, it is simple to make and one of the best things about making it is the cinnamon aroma throughout my home.
Homemade Turmeric Cinnamon Lemongrass Tea
Yield 5 servings
- 2 chunks of turmeric root
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 2 four inch pieces of lemongrass
- 5 cups of filtered water
- Put ALL ingredients in a small pot with a lid on the stove, put the flame on low/simmer and just let it simmer for about 20 minutes until the water turns rich red/orange. Your entire home will have the cinnamon aroma, LOVE that part!
- Once your tea is ready, rich red/orange in color, just strain the liquid into a mug and sip away!
