Turmeric Ginger Tea – If you are looking for a way to include anti-inflammatory spices in your diet, this turmeric tea should be your first stop. Simple, fast, inexpensive, refreshing, and healing tea!
Turmeric Ginger Tea
Loaded with immune-boosting ingredients, like turmeric and ginger, and it’s actually tasty!. I sometimes double the ginger because I enjoy the little tingle that I feel in the back of my throat as I drink it.
This turmeric ginger tea is enjoyable hot or cold, just like the lemon ginger drink I made a while ago. However, it’s very important to allow the tea to cool for a while before pouring it into the pitcher, so it doesn’t crack.
What is Ginger Turmeric Tea good for?
Why is Turmeric Tea good for you? Turmeric’s active ingredient, curcumin, is one of the most naturally powerful anti-inflammatory herbs. Because of it, turmeric’s benefits include:
- An anti-inflammatory that rivals the strength of cortisone and phenylbutazone
- Cancer preventative and helpful supplement in treating cancer
- Helpful with weight loss
- Reducing depression
- Healing psoriasis and other skin ailments
- Anti-microbial that helps avoid various illness
- Helps liver health
- Natural pain killer
- Natural anti-septic great for healing external wounds
- Boosts brain function—it has been shown to possibly prevent and/or slow the progressions of Alzheimer’s

Can you refrigerate Tumeric Ginger Tea? –
Yes! You can refrigerate and enjoy it cold when you are ready and you can also reheat if you want. When reheating, it’s best to do it over the stove on low heat in order to preserve the potency of the turmeric and ginger.
How long will this tea stay in the fridge?
It will keep 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator.
Are Turmeric teabags good?
Of course, this answer largely depends on the brand, but you can always vouch for the effectiveness of making your own!
When to drink Ginger Turmeric Tea?
There isn’t a specific time that is best to drink Turmeric Tea. I like to make a large batch drink hot in the morning and keep the rest in the fridge for a refreshing cold tea in the middle of the day.
- I made six cups of tea with this recipe, feel free to divide the recipe into two or multiply by two if you wish.
- Remember turmeric stains, so make sure you make this tea in a glass pitcher and spread a paper towel or an old kitchen towel on the table surface in order to prevent your surface from stain.
