Turmeric and Ginger Iced Tea

At this point we all know how good for you turmeric is — if you don’t just Google it, you'll be flooded with tons of information on this super spice.
We have also learned how to include turmeric in our recipes: rice, chicken, mashed sweet potatoes, soups, etc. Not to mention that turmeric latte (aka golden milk) has become one of our favorite drinks.
So it was only a matter of time before we would use turmeric in the quintessential summertime drink: iced tea.
Iced tea is cold, refreshing, and looks so pretty in a tall glass with lots of ice. With turmeric it becomes also super healthy.

I’m not sure whether I can call this drink “iced tea”, since there’s no actual tea in it. Probably “iced beverage” or “iced infusion” would be more appropriate names. But I feel that “iced tea” gives the perfect idea of what it is: a brewed beverage served cold.
Anyways, this Turmeric and Ginger Iced Tea is refreshing and delicious as it is yellow and good-for-you.
Seriously, turmeric has so many benefits, and a little bit goes a long way. It will cleanse you from the inside out.
This Turmeric and Ginger Iced Tea is a refreshing drink that is super delicious, very healthy, and perfect for a hot summer day.
So just sip away!

Serves 4

6 cups of water, divided
½ teaspoon ground turmeric (you can add more if you like however be careful not too much or the taste will be too strong)

½ lemon, sliced (rind included)
Handful fresh mint leaves (optional but highly recommended)
¼ cup sugar (or other sweetener of choice, make sure to pick one with a mild taste)


Place 1 cup of water, turmeric, ginger, and lemon slices into a small saucepan. Bring to boil, reduce to a simmer, and let simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove from the heat, add sugar (or other sweetener of choice), and give a good stir.
Cover with a lid and let steep for 1 hour (you can let it steep overnight for stronger flavor).
Strain syrup (using a fine mesh strainer or a cheesecloth) into a pitcher and add remaining 5 cups of water (you can add more water depending on how strong you want the iced tea to be).
