Immunity Booster Turmeric Tea – Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara, Oman
We’re starting with a simple sipper: a soothing hot tea. The key ingredient of this herbal drink is fresh turmeric, a root closely related to ginger and commonly used in Asian food. Turmeric contains bioactive compounds including curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory properties that increases the antioxidant capacity of the body and improves brain function, fights depression, contains anti-aging properties, and boosts your immune system.
· ½ cup of fresh raw turmeric
· ¼ cup of fresh raw ginger
· Juice of 1 lemon
· 3 Tbsp of honey
· 4 tsp of distilled water (boiled water that has cooled)
Blend all ingredients until they become a well-emulsified paste.
After you’ve created the base, use 2 tablespoons to 1 cup of hot water; let sit for 2 minutes and add a few mint leaves for serving.
