A GUIDE TO Turmeric Tea

You’re more likely to associate turmeric with your kitchen spice rack than your tea cup. As a staple of curries, soups and even smoothies, Turmeric has been used in traditional Asian cooking and holistic medicine for thousands of years. Yet recently, Turmeric has reached superfood status in the West, in everything from food, beverages and beauty products - including glorious turmeric tea!

Benefits of Turmeric Tea


The first thing you notice about turmeric is the color – the second is the taste! Turmeric spice comes from a curcumin-rich root that has been finely ground into a golden-orange powder. It’s enjoyed for its earthy taste and traditionally recognized for its restorative benefits and as a digestive aid. In fact, many people have nicknamed it a ‘super spice’. No wonder, that turmeric tea has been popping up on everyone’s radar. Indeed, many cafes now sell the acclaimed turmeric golden milk lattes and some folk are even brewing it at home. 

Here at Lipton, we can’t get enough of this golden yellow tea. It’s why we’ve made it a protagonist in two of our new blends – Terrific Turmeric and Daily Support Herbal Supplement with Green Tea. Both have been designed to be a delicious part of your wellness routine. What’s not to love? 


Ginger and turmeric

Turmeric Tea Bags


Whether enjoying it as an after-dinner conversation piece while hosting friends or during me time, it is worth taking a turmeric timeout to help you reset and restore. 

The ginger and orange additions to Lipton Terrific Turmeric make it a great soothing herbal tea. Or for a more reviving taste, try Lipton Daily Support Herbal Supplement with Green Tea. It celebrates turmeric by combing it with echinacea, ginger and natural orange essential oil to deliver a fresh, zesty feel. An excellent source of Vitamin C for your body’s natural defenses*, and you’ll feel great, too!

Got a taste for something different? You can also put a few spins on turmeric tea to make it your own. For those with a sweeter tooth, why not add a touch of honey? Or if you’re craving an Eastern flavor, just stir in some coconut oil (a great vegan-friendly option!). If you want to spice things up some more, go all out by adding cayenne pepper!

How to make turmeric tea


To get the most out of your turmeric tea bags, it’s best to set aside a few minutes to make it. But that’s all part of your unwinding process! Just let your tea bag sit for 4-6 minutes in freshly boiled water – that way, the spicy richness can really come through. 

Turmeric also lends itself well to being enjoyed iced! For a cooler take, simply pour four cups of boiling water over two bags in a heat proof pitcher and leave for three to five minutes. Remove the turmeric tea bags and sweeten taste. Stir in six cups of ice cubes until melted or use four cups of cold water. Add freshly cut lemon or orange slices for some citrus zing. Then keep in the fridge to sip and enjoy all day long.

As an added bonus, it’s the perfect drink to give guests on a hot summer’s day in the garden. If you're feeling adventurous, why not try creating an energising turmeric smoothie?
