Turmeric Root Tea
I am in love with drinking turmeric tea! Here is way maybe you should be as well!
Turmeric has been used in recipes and for medicinal purposes for thousands of years throughout Asia, and especially in India. In recent years it has grown in popularity in the West due to numerous scientific studies showing unbelievable health benefits.

I make a pot full and sip it through the day. It is a warm, soothing and flavorful experience.
Remove the skin
Cut into 6-8 thin pieces longways
I use 6-8 pieces, but if you want a milder tea use less
Place turmeric, 1-2 cinnamon sticks and a dash of black pepper (without the pepper your body won't absorb turmeric or it's many benefits) in to a pot with 6 cups of water
Bring to a boil
Turn down to a simmer
Cook for 30 minutes on a simmer.
Pour a cup- add some honey if you like or whisk in some warmed almond milk. Enjoy!
Note: When I am home I will leave my pot on simmer all day, which will make a very strong tea.
