This turmeric tea with ginger and lemon is a perfect drink for warming your bones when the weather changes from warm to cold. Ginger and Turmeric are an excellent pair, and together they are an aromatic delight. Ginger root is warming and soothing and makes this tea perfect when you have a bit of a cold. Combined with lemon (also high in vitamin C, a well-known antioxidant) and Eastern Shore Honey, it’s warm, soothing, and sweet enough. If you like, add coconut milk for a similar brew to spiced chai. If you don’t have time to blend your tea, no problem, we’ve blended BEAUTEA specifically for this recipe, add lemon and honey, and you’re ready for a beautifying and soothing treat!
Turmeric is an enjoyable spice. Not only does it give our favorite curries a bright color and an earthy flavor, but it also offers some anti-inflammatory benefits inside and outside.
Ginger and Turmeric offer Benefits for the Skin
Gingerols, the oily resin of the ginger root, features potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. When topically applied, ginger can inhibit free radicals that cause skin damage and aging. It is also used to reduce the appearance of hypopigmented skin (which is light or white from loss of skin coloring, caused mainly by injury), even skin tone, and improve elasticity.
How to Make Turmeric Tea
Start with one tablespoon of Waxing Kara’s loose-leaf Beautea; by doing this, you can skip the fresh ginger and fresh Turmeric in the next step.
Cut a few lemon slices and place them in a mug. If you do not have BEAUTEA (from step one), add fresh-cut Turmeric and ginger to the mug.
Add boiling hot water.
Allow your tea to steep for 5 minutes, then add your favorite Eastern Shore Honey and serve.
Curcumin, a chemical compound found in the turmeric plant, may help reduce swelling and irritations in the body. It also offers quite a few excellent benefits when used on the Skin. Research is ongoing about the uses and benefits of Turmeric, so in the meantime, we’ll enjoy this ginger and turmeric tea when we’re cold in the winter!
