  • Author: Lorna Kring

  • Yield: 4 mugs


Spices have very high levels of antioxidants. This masala-blended turmeric tea is delicious and aromatic, and contributes to your good health, too.


  • 6-8 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric or 2 tablespoons freshly sliced
  • 2-3 cinnamon sticks or 2 teaspoons ground
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 2-by-2-inch (approximately) piece of fresh ginger, coarsely sliced, or 1 teaspoon ground
  • Honey (optional)
  • Non-dairy creamer (optional)


  1. In a medium pot, combine all of the ingredients except the honey and creamer, and bring just to a boil. Reduce heat promptly, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Strain into cups through a fine mesh sieve or tea strainer. Sweeten and add creamer to taste.
