Have you noticed the amount of turmeric tea recipes available on the internet these days? Every blogger and self-made expert in sight advises their favourite brew and how to drink it.
Unfortunately many of the turmeric tea recipes you find on the internet are misleading and will not allow your body to maximise the turmeric benefits that this spice may bring you (Click HERE to read more about Turmeric Benefits).
This is WHY…
1) Turmeric requires a little bit of low heat cooking (as suggested in our Golden Paste recipe) and this will give you better results than simply pouring boiling water over a bit of powdered Turmeric or grated root.
4) Some recipes instruct people to add extreme amounts of Turmeric, such as 4 teaspoons in one cup. This is overkill and possibly dangerous. Detoxing fads are useless at best and dangerous at worst. They don’t work unless you practice permanent detoxing by eating and living the way your body needs you to EVERY day – not just occasionally, by drinking some “magic” tea to rectify the usual dietary abuse you subject yourself to the rest of the year.
SO…How should you make Turmeric Tea?
If you find a Turmeric Tea recipe, or a nice Golden Milk drink that takes your fancy ADD Golden Paste to it instead, and enjoy it that way.
OR follow the simple instructions below:
Add 1/4 teaspoon of Turmeric Golden Paste to a hot cup of freshly-brewed tea and stir.
NB: It will taste ‘different’ thanks to the oil and pepper that is in Golden Paste BUT this is the best way to gain maximum turmeric benefits.
Ultimately we advise our turmeric community to add the Golden Paste to any drink they want to try (minus sweeteners which can cause inflammation) rather than follow any old recipe using turmeric. The addition of Golden Paste should ensure your body will receive the turmeric benefits you are seeking.
