"If you are having trouble including these anti-inflammatory spices in your diet, here is an alternative to supplements. Actually quite tasty! I believe this tea is popular in Okinawa, Japan. Just remember turmeric stains. I make mine in an old mason jar, wrapped in an old tea towel! Turmeric is used for medicinal purposes in India."

Easy to make. The taste was OK. It did not make you want more. I used ginger and lemon essential oils.

I make this all the time in the cold months with fresh organic Turmeric and Ginger. I also use organic lemon wedge and raw honey. Reducing the toxins while receiving the full benefits of the tea.
