15. Trinity’s Golden Wonder Tea:
This point is not about benefits, but this herbs-full Turmeric Ginger Tea is so beneficial for health.
Take this tea if you are suffering from cold or feeling general weakness, or after you have done intense physical labor.
This tea is also highly beneficial for the lungs, as well as any pain, strain, or general trauma to the body.
Drink 1–2 cups per day, as needed.
However, 2 cups a day, is a large amount of turmeric tea per day.
So I don’t recommend using this for longer than one week, or every other week as needed if the issue is acute.
Here is the Recipe!
- 2 cups of water
- 6 slices fresh ginger root, sliced
- 4 tablespoons organic turmeric powder
- 1 tablespoon ghee
- 1 cup warm milk, coconut milk, or milk alternative or 1 cup ginger or tulsi (holy basil) tea (optional)
- Honey to taste
- Pinch of cardamom powder (to garnish)
- Additional ingredients for a cooling eﬀect: Gotu kola and goji berries (as many as you want)
How you can make it?
- Simmer water, ginger slices, and turmeric powder with 1 tablespoon of ghee for 30–45 minutes until it yields a golden-red paste.
- Add extra water, if needed.
- Add 1–2 tablespoons of the turmeric paste to warm organic milk, or ginger or tulsi tea.
- Add almond milk, hemp milk, or oat milk to taste. (if you like)
During the simmering phase, you could also add any of the following spices:
- 1 tablespoon Ashwagandha powder,
- 6 fresh ginger slices,
- Or ½ teaspoon ground black pepper.
Strain the tea well before drinking.
- Add 2 tablespoons of ghee, honey to taste, milk or milk alternative, and,
- A Pinch of cardamom powder to your turmeric tea or milk base.
Drink with a spoon nearby to avoid the big chunk of turmeric paste at the bottom!
Store any additional turmeric powder paste in the fridge until your next round of tea.
If this formula of herbs is so hot for you, add cooling herbs, such as Gotu kola or goji berries, to make the formula more constitutionally appropriate with herbs.
Always try to use organic Turmeric. Try not to purchase the turmeric stacked in the supermarket.
Because traditionally grown turmeric has always grown by using fertilizers and pesticides. If you want to reap the benefits of turmeric, use organic turmeric.
And organic turmeric is always grown in a natural environment without any fertilizers and pesticides.
Turmeric Tea should not be taken by people who suffer from gallbladder problems.
Because the spice (sometimes) causes contraction of the gallbladder muscles.
So, if you suffer from problems associated with the gallbladder, you should not take this tea.
Turmeric Tea (Golden Tea): In Conclusion
No doubt, Turmeric Tea or Golden Tea is a delicious drink loaded with antioxidants that may provide a variety of health benefits.
The benefits range from detoxification of liver to joint and arthritis pain and from the heart to stronger bones, improved digestion, better sleep, and a lower risk of various diseases.
To reap the most Health Benefits of Turmeric Tea, try to use calcium and vitamin D enriched milk (organic dairy milk) with some herbs that I have mentioned in my Trinity’s Golden Wonder Tea Recipe.
Limit the amount (1 tablespoon a glass) of honey you add to your Turmeric Tea.
