Turmeric Tea with Lemon & Honey

Turmeric has powerful anti-cancer properties as well as numerous other health benefits. Take advantage of them by drinking this warming, medicinal tea on a regular basis. This turmeric tea recipe is also brilliant for naturally easing coughs and colds.


  1. Pour the boiling water into a heat proof jug.
  2. Add the ginger, turmeric, black pepper and cinnamon and allow them to steep in the water for 10 minutes.
  3. After 10 minutes, add the lemon juice and honey (if using). Stir well, then pass the tea through a fine sieve into a tea cup or heat-proof glass.
  4. Serve and enjoy, stirring occasionally to stop the residue from sinking to the bottom of the glass.


If you are drinking this tea to complement cancer therapy, omit the honey as it is a source of sugar which should be avoided.

    A word of warning based on dental research found on line. Drinking teas with lemon juice is of negative effect on the enamel on teeth. I will try it without the lemon.

    1. Thank you for highlighting this about lemon, and posting the link. The article is really interesting. I love lemon in water and in tea, but do you know what, my teeth are not great! This is a good reminder to use citrus in drinks occasionally rather than everyday :)
