Looking for an anti-inflammatory drink? This Turmeric Tea is for you. It's healthy, delicious and full of curcumin, an anti-inflammatory compound. Bottom's up for your health!
If you haven't heard of Turmeric Tea, where have you been?
It contains curcumin which has strong anti-inflammatory properties.
According to Dr. Weil, elderly villagers in India who eat this spice every day in their curries, have the lowest rates of Alzheimer's in the world. If that's not reason enough to give this Turmeric Iced Tea a try, I'm not sure what is.
I have to admit, I had my doubts about how this would taste - it's delicious and refreshing. My daughter tried it and gave it a thumbs down, but I'm not surprised. This tea is for mommy. It's a great treat for a hot day and something a bit different from your everyday iced coffee.
If you prefer hot tea, try this Orange Peel Tea.
