Turmeric tea is a popular beverage throughout Asia and is known by some as “liquid gold.” Turmeric is a prized spice, the active ingredient curcumin, is one of nature's most powerful anti-inflammatory spices. This milk also works well as a sleeping aid, but feel free to drink anytime, day or night! It’s absolutely delicious, warming and I love the hint of black pepper, try it, you’ll like it, and so will your body…mmm.
