Turmeric Tea .

- Turmeric Tea Recipe - 101 Cookbooks:
Turmeric tends to stain anything it comes into contact with, so be careful.
1/3 cup / 80 ml good, raw honey
2 1/2 teaspoons dried turmeric
lemon
lots of freshly ground black pepper

Work the turmeric into the honey until it forms a paste.
You can keep this on hand, in a jar, for whenever you'd like a cup.

For each cup of tea, place a heaping teaspoon of the turmeric paste in the bottom of a mug.
Pour hot (but not boiling water) into the mug, and stir well to dissolve the turmeric paste.
Add a big squeeze of juice from a lemon, and a good amount of black pepper. Enjoy!
Stir now and then as you drink so all the good stuff doesn't settle to the bottom, or top off with more hot water as you drink it.

- Turmeric Tea - The View from Great Island:
2 cups coconut milk (or almond milk)

1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 cinnamon stick
6 peppercorns
6 cardamom pods
1 star anise
pinch of cayenne pepper
honey to taste

Gently crack the cardamom pods open with a rolling pin, being careful not to lose the tiny black seeds.
Break the cinnamon stick in two.
Put all the ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer.
Turn off the heat and let steep for 5 minutes.
Bring the tea back up to a simmer, then strain into warm mugs.
Top with a little ground cinnamon, if desired.
