This video of my homemade spicy tea recipe is made with fresh ginger and fresh turmeric and black tea. Every ingredient added to this tea has great health benefits. If you’re tired of the same old chai tea or your daily pot of green tea, this is a great alternative that comes with big health benefits.
To have an ageless lifestyle after 50 you must have a healthy ageless body and that starts with healthy food and healthy recipes.
Homemade Spicy Ginger Turmeric Tea Recipe
As I mentioned in the video, this recipe is by taste rather than precise measurements.
My tea pot is about 9 cups. I never use more than 1 tea bag, but you may want your tea flavor stronger.
Here’s the list of ingredients and you can also see them in the photo.
1 black tea bag
fresh ginger root
1 teaspoon raw local honey (or honey of your choice)
1 teaspoon organic coconut oil
black pepper to taste
Almond milk or (milk of your choice)
Boil about 9-10 cups of water. While the water is boiling, drop the tea bag into the pot and grate the ginger and turmeric directly into the tea pot. I use the large holes on the grater to make it go faster. Again, grate to your taste. I do about 1/2 inch of each ginger and turmeric.
When the water is ready, put your coconut oil in the pot and pour some water over the spoon to clean it off. Then put in your honey and use more boiling water to clean off the spoon and get all the honey in the pot.
Do a couple cranks of the black pepper, or how ever much you like. Put the cover on the tea pot and let it steep for 20-30 minutes.
Pour your cup 3/4 with tea and top with your choice of milk.
Black pepper and coconut oil help in the absorption of the turmeric.
I very seldom use a sweetener or milk in my tea, and if you don’t either, you can decrease the amount of milk you put in the tea, but having some milk is important to the recipe.
If you do use sweeteners, you may think I’m crazy for only using 1 teaspoon for a whole pot of tea. Do what tastes right for you!
Also, the coconut oil gives it a smooth and slightly nutty flavor I really enjoy. It makes it taste richer and more decadent than plain tea.
