I absolutely love this cleansing anti-inflammatory tea! It is warm and soothing in the winter months, and is refreshing served over ice in the spring and summer. I usually make this once or twice per week. I store it in mason jars to have on hand during the week.

Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It fights inflammation at the molecular level, by blocking a molecule that turns on genes related to inflammation, and also boosts your own body’s antioxidant activity in order to more effectively fight free radicals and ward off chronic disease.
